Prior to 2011 Steve was CEO of Angelica Corporation (NYSE:AGL) from 2003 to 2011. Angelica is America’s leading provider of healthcare linen services. At Angelica, Steve refocused Angelica's efforts from retail and multi-industry laundry to healthcare linen services, leading to the successful take private transaction for Angelica in August, 2008. 

Prior to Angelica, Steve was CEO of Rawlings Sporting Goods (NASDAQ:RAWL) from 1998 to 2003.  Steve joined then publicly traded Rawlings at a time of great crisis with debt 30X EBITDA, hostile activists seeking control of the company, and operating while in the bank work out group.  Steve and his team created a new vision for Rawlings, refinanced the business, sold off a non-performing unit and exited unprofitable sponsorships, and refocused growth on the core baseball business, allowing Rawlings to pay down 35% of its debt, quadrupling EBITDA and leading to a successful merger with K-2.
