Kevin O'Callaghan Co-Chairman and Chief Revenue Officer
"Launching Steer as a founding donor is the result of my personal experiences in sports and my belief in the power of sports to improve lives. I have found much success as a CEO and nonprofit Chairman, but my most cherished experiences, other than those with my family, are playing high school and collegiate sports growing up. I am adamant that participating in sports at a young age can set a foundation of character that one can carry with them throughout any life endeavor. Along with the rest of the Steer team, I intend to ensure consistency in the Steer Approach and to support student athletes in their transition in to adulthood."
