Steve has many passions: his church, family, clients, Bishop Carroll High School, and Wichita State University. A life-long Wichitan, Steve is a firm believer in giving back. He is an active member of St. George Orthodox Christian Cathedral, having served as past president of the Parish Council and the Cathedral Endowment. He was also Co-Chair of the “100 yr. Cathedral Capital Campaign.” On Sunday mornings, you will see and hear him singing bass in the Cathedral Choir.

An avid Wichita State Shocker for life, Steve has served on the WSU Alumni Association Board and was past president of the organization. Steve is also a member of the Wichita Metro Crime Commission and serves on the board as well.

Steve has been in the advisory business for 30 years and he and Tom Hoover have been partners for 17 years. One of the highlights of their careers has been their sons, Pete and Jason, joining Cohlmia Hoover Group in 2009 and 2018 respectively. “Our clients are like family to us, we are here to grow with them and their following generations.” Steve holds Series 7 (General Securities Representative), 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination) & 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination) securities licenses and is life insurance licensed.

But Steve’s real pride and joy is his family. His wife of 40 years Missy, their son Pete and his wife Tiffany, their daughter Leigh and her husband Dr. Maged Elzein, and their grandkids Jack, Bridget, Remy, Mira and Jad.

To Steve, it is all about family and relationships.
