Steve started The Growth Society based on the difficulty he experienced in making time to help entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs evaluate their business plans and concepts. As individual requests grew, it became increasingly challenging to properly engage with each leader and have a meaningful conversation. He had the desire and interest, but lacked the mechanism and method to give each plan their due. He also discovered that many of his colleagues encountered the same challenges. The Growth Society was designed to systematically evaluate and engage in vastly different business plans in swift and meaningful ways so that all parties can make better growth decisions.
In addition to The Society efforts, Steve has been a pioneer in the communications industry for three decades. He leads the vision for Vista Growth, an agency that has served as a brand and business partner for some of the world’s most interesting brands including UPS, The Coca-Cola Company, IBM, The Carlyle Group, and Ronald McDonald Houses. He’s a recognized authority in corporate and marketing communications, an entrepreneur, and an avid world traveler. Steve studied at the University of Georgia with studies abroad in Italy, later attending Executive Education at Harvard Business School. Steve is a long-standing member of TED, serves on the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses and frequently lectures and supports the Atlanta-based academic and creative communities including Goizueta Business School at Emory University, AIGA Atlanta, and SCAD.
