Steve started as a select account manager for small business insurance in Great Falls, Montana in 2019. He is responsible for managing, updating and adding small business clients to PayneWest's growing book of business. Prior to PayneWest, Steve gained a tremendous sales and service background—first with corporate AT&T and later in independent personal and health insurance. Steve chose to pursue a career in insurance to help people be and feel protected. Helping others and doing the right thing for them is a wonderful career. He especially enjoys helping our small business customers feel appreciated and protected. A bachelor's degree in student ministry and minor in guidance counseling from Colorado Christian University in Denver started his education. After college, he continued his education and obtained his first insurance licenses in 2007 for health insurance sales. Outside of work, he is involved with the Great Falls Chamber. Steve's family consists of his wife, Becca, and his three sons: Jonathan, Samuel and Christopher. His free time is spent reading, working out, marketing, spending time with his wonderful wife, Becca, and frequenting the Glacier National Park area with his family.
