Steve provides a unique blend of marketing, management, and organizational development experience. With his leadership, Masterworks has grown from 10 people to more than 100 dedicated professionals. According to Steve, his single most important decision at Masterworks was answering God’s call to focus on Christian organizations. That has led to a culture where the client’s mission is first, innovation is continuous, and profit is rarely considered in any decision.
As a former vice president at World Vision, Steve led all marketing programs, in addition to church and volunteer programs and donor services. During his 12 years at World Vision, media income grew from $40 million to $130 million annually. Before joining Masterworks, Steve was a partner in The Thomas Group, a management consulting firm helping Fortune 500 companies boost productivity and profitability through process reengineering.
Steve has also served as chair of the Communications Working Group for the Lausanne Movement since 2007. For the Cape Town 2010 Congress, he assembled a team of 150 communications professionals from 27 countries. He spent a quarter of his time for four years in this volunteer leadership role.
