Inside MC – Meet the Team – Steve


As an Implementation Consultant for Maintenance Connection, Steve Gustafson enjoys working with clients from many different industries and learning about their unique business processes. In his year since joining MC, he has already implemented 40 clients from 15 different states. Steve was especially appreciative of a recent opportunity to travel to Australia to provide customer training, partaking in “down under customs” such as driving on the wrong side of the road, mingling with some of the local wildlife (koalas and kangaroos), and eating shrimp on the Barbie with our Maintenance Connection AU Team.

Steve feels fortunate to have been raised in Colorado, where he has taken full advantage of the beautiful environment by mountain biking, skiing, fishing and hiking. Through both high school and college, Steve played football and kept busy with extensive extracurricular activities. While attending the University or Northern Colorado, he became very involved in student government and the Greek community, even serving as the student body president. The highlight of his college experience, however, was meeting his lovely wife Erin. Steve and Erin now reside in Centennial, a suburb of Denver, with their three rather rambunctious sons, Braden (4), Conner (3), and Carson (1).

Steve has a special involvement in Over the Rainbow Association, a non-profit organization founded by his grandparents. Over the Rainbow is dedicated to providing independent living solutions for individuals with physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. The organization was formed by a group of Chicago area parents, concerned about their children’s future. Steve considers his Uncle Bob, who has cerebral palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair his whole life, to be one of the most influential people in his life. He is inspired by his uncle’s ability to maintain the best disposition and virtually always wear a broad smile, even though he encounters adversity every day.

Steve has always been amazed at the personal growth and satisfaction that comes from helping others and encourages all to get behind a cause of their choosing. If anyone would like to learn more about the Over the Rainbow Association, visit their website at http://www.otrassn.org/about-us .
