Executive Board / Board of Directors
Steve grew up in Louisiana near two military installations, England Air Force Base, Alexandria, LA and Fort Polk, Leesville, LA. At an early age, he joined the Air Force JROTC program and rose to the rank of Cadet Captain. He also became a member of Civil Air Patrol where he learned to fly Cessna and Piper aircraft.
His further interest in aviation and aerospace was developed after visiting NASA, Houston, TX. That visit lead to him developing an expertise in building and launching model rockets and piloting model airplanes.
In his early 20s, he joined the United States Marine Corps, and served his basic training at MCRD, San Diego, CA. After completing and graduating top of his class at the Military Police and Correction school, Fort McClellan, Anniston, AL, he was assigned as a Correction Guard, MCDEC, Quantico, VA.
During his time at Quantico, Steve participated in the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan, housed several very high profile inmates to include John Hinckley, Jr., and further his expertise as a Corrections Officer by completing numerous law enforcement & weapons courses at the FBI Academy, Quantico, VA.
After leaving the military, Steve joined Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company, Manassas, VA, where he won numerous sales awards to include the President’s Club (3 times) and was one of the top sales professional for Mutual of Omaha; at one time he was number 4 in the United States, Canada, Panama and Puerto Rico.
Steve went on to become a sales professional for AT&T, Reston, VA; thus beginning his telecommunication sales career and leading to the position of Global Director for Lucent Technologies and AVAYA. After leading his US sales team, he was assigned to head up Lucent Technologies and AVAYA’s CRM practice across EMEA and APAC; based in Budapest, Hungary and encompassing over 30 countries. Steve’s efforts, along with his team, lead to a $120 million global contract for a very high profile corporate client.
His next assignment was as a Global Sales Manager for Analysys Consulting, Cambridge, UK, where he was instrumental in working with over 60 governments at the Minister of Telecommunications level; this lead to representing the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) while heading up a project to rebuild the telecommunication infrastructure for the Republic of Lebanon (project value $550 million), assisting the Vietnamese Army "equitize" its network and meet requirements for membership into the World Trade Organization (WTO), and consulted with the governments of Brazil, Argentina, Croatia, Romania, Belgium, Netherlands, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa and others on telecom related issues.

Steve left the UK for an assignment in Berlin, Germany with a German telecom company. Shortly after arriving to Berlin, he realized his interest in telecommunications had shifted and became interested in environmental issues. Witnessing so much environmental devastation while travelling to developing countries, he felt he had to do something.
Over time, he decided to learn as much as he could about the fossil fuels and alternative energy industries and became a Sales Manager for the largest Energy Trading & Risk Management (ETRM) / Commodity Trading & Risk Management (CTRM) software house.
He left initially to focus on Ethanol based products and run his own business. Market research indicated he should initially focus on supporting DLA as it migrates from fossil fuels to Ethanol and be in position to support the migration in EMEA.
