As Vice President of Business Intelligence, Steve leads the organization’s Business Intelligence division, which serves as a central source of data for the Hampton Roads region and local business environment.  He and his team compile a wide variety of information, ranging from real estate to demographics and business ready sites, and work with the Business Development team with prospects that are considering establishing or expanding operations in the region.
