Steve has founded five (5) companies that provide services to the sports industry by leveraging 20+ years of seasoned connections to leaders in Sports Marketing, Collegiate Athletic Recruiting & Compliance and TV & Film Production.
In 2004, Steve created Bluechip Athletic Solutions, which provides a bundled suite of SaaS-based proprietary database technology, traditional marketing techniques and content creation services that helps colleges recruit their athletes. This approach caused a significant paradigm shift in how schools approached the Student-Athlete Recruiting process and continues to be a standard that is bench-marked against. These solutions were eventually adopted by other departments including Marketing, Fund Raising, Video/Film Production, Social/New Media, Admissions and Compliance.
78% of today’s Power 5 Conference members utilized these services and 38 projects won awards from the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts. He sold his ownership in December 2015.
Prior to Bluechip, he sold mission critical technology and services for companies like ADP, Computer Associates, Answerthink Consulting, Optum and Inceptor. He also launched a TV and Film production company called SS Kennedy Entertainment.
