As a sales representative for one of the largest PEO’s in South Texas. With a heart to serve and a love for business, the complexity of the employer/employee challenges, he quickly became the leading sales representative for Regional Management, Inc. During that time, from 1995-2002, he averaged $20 Million dollars a year in new sales and ran over $128 Million dollars in annual revenue at the time the business was acquired in 2002 by A.M.S., Inc. based in Dallas, Texas.
In 2003 Steven purchased shares in two PEO Companies in San Antonio, Texas. Prime Source Management, Inc. and Alamo Staff Leasing, Inc. The two PEO’s were combined as PSM/ASL Holdings, Inc in San Antonio, Texas. He served on the Board of Directors and as Senior VP in charge of Sales and Marketing. Under his direction PSM/ASL Holding, Inc. grew from a $35 Million-dollar organization to a $140 Million dollar in transaction. This gave him both the tools and resources to effectively service all risk management aspects of employment.
In 2008, Steven sold his interest in PSM/ASL Holding, Inc. to take a break from the day to day business world to enjoy his family, fishing, diving and golf in Central America.
After five years of residing abroad, in the Western Caribbean, he returned to Texas to actively pursue another opportunity in the PEO business. In 2016, Steven began the process of purchasing Covenant Services, Located in the beautiful Hill Country, in Boerne, Texas. Covenant Services is an Eighteen-year-old, Boutique type, Professional Employer Organization, with a long history of outstanding customer service and client retention, along with the staff’s commitment to the client’s interest, wellbeing, and customer satisfaction.
The purchase was finalized in the beginning of 2018. Steven plans to continue client relations always being mindful of the personal attention, to each client company and to grow the company in a Boutique type manner with a focus more on client retention rather than growth.
Steven has two grown daughters, Ashlie 26, and Kyla, 24. Steven resides, on his ranch, in Tarpley, Texas with his wife, Becky, of 27 years and his 14-year-old son Tristan. The Stoops family enjoys golfing at the River Hills Country Club in Kerrville, Texas. They also continue to enjoy deep sea fishing and diving in Belize.
