Growing up on a small dairy farm in rural Wisconsin taught Steve the work ethic that has helped make him successful in today’s business environment. His passion for Altra, our employees and our members is evident each and every day as he strives to enhance Altra’s value proposition. Steve was the first Credit Union executive from the State of Wisconsin to be chosen to serve in the prestigious Filene Research Institute’s i3 program, a nationwide industry think tank. This experience helps Steve in his continual efforts to move Altra forward and never be content with the status quo. One co-worker described Steve as “an excellent facilitator of change.” Steve is the champion for innovation at Altra and leads an internal innovation team in its quest to push Altra to be truly a leader in the financial services industry.
Steve started his career at Altra in 1996. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse and has 30+ yrs of experience in Retail Banking.
The passion Steve brings to Altra also carries over to community and family. He has coached youth football and baseball. He is President of the Cashton Alumni Association and serves on the Boards of Coulee Region Junior Achievement and CU Insurance Services of Tennessee. When not working or volunteering you will probably find Steve hanging out with his family and friends, watching sports or doing something on his hunting land.
