Steven entered the P.E.O. Business in 1994 as a sales representative for one of the largest P.E.O.’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 a year in new sales and ran over $128 Million 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 P.E.O. Companies in San Antonio, Texas. Prime Source Management, Inc. and Alamo Staff Leasing, Inc. The two P.E.O.’s were combined as PSM/ASL Holdings, Inc in San Antonio, Texas. He served on the Board of Directors and as Senior V.P. in charge of Sales and Marketing. Under his direction, PSM/ASL Holding, Inc. grew from a $35 Million organization to a $140 Million in transactions. 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 golfing in Central America.
In 2016, Steven began the process of purchasing Covenant Services. After five years of residing abroad, in the Western Caribbean, he returned to Texas to actively pursue another opportunity in the P.E.O. 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 at the beginning of 2018. Steven plans to continue client relations, always 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 resides, on his ranch, in Tarpley, Texas, with his wife, Becky, of 28 years and his 16-year-old son Tristan. The Stoops family enjoys golfing at the Riverhill Country Club in Kerrville, Texas. They also continue to enjoy deep sea fishing and diving in Belize.
