Expertise and Coaching Approach

Steve leads sustainable business innovation at Quantis, a leading international sustainability consulting group that uses science and data to guide top organizations to their sustainable future.

Paul School of Business and Economics, and has been a guest lecturer in the UNH Sustainability program and for the University of Vermont business school’s Sustainable Innovation MBA program.

Before joining Quantis, Steve was recruited to innovate the learning and consulting services portfolio for the NeuroLeadership Institute, including topics such as diversity and inclusion, psychological safety / motivation and the mitigation of bias in decision-making. In 2019, he wrote and delivered a TEDx talk to 900 people about the systemic intersection of negotiations theory, psychological motivations and politics.

Steve has been an Associate Partner at Korn Ferry delivering assessment, coaching and development for high-potential executives at international companies.

Education and Credentials

Steve earned his MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley, and his BA in Linguistics and Cognition from the University of New Hampshire. He is currently finishing his master’s degree in Sustainability from Harvard University.

And Life…

Steve has too many interests to master any of them. You might spot him canoeing, teaching wine tasting, setting up a tent in the snow, learning a new language, listening intently to acoustic music or making a laughing mess while cooking with his young daughter. He lives with his wife and daughter in the beautiful seacoast region of New Hampshire.
