He has always had an entrepreneurial spirit with a goal to follow the family tradition and start his own firm. In the first quarter of 2012, he decided that he had reached the point in his career where he had the experience and resources to start a firm of his own. In 2015 an opportunity presented itself with one of his most valued Subcontractors.
In 2015 Steve was approached by Flex-Erect, LLC, and invited to join the team as Vice President of Operations with the option to purchase the firm from a founding member. In November of 2019, the purchase was completed with Steve as the majority member of the Company.
