Steve Vaughan
Executive VP

Years at Excellance: 20

Steve’s educational background consists of an Economics degree from Brigham Young University in Utah and an MBA from Houston Baptist University in Texas. He spent ten years in oil & gas exploration and five years in private equity before he came to work at Excellance. Steve was raised in Alabama, and he actually was in Kindergarten with Excellance President Charlie Epps. After Alabama, Steve moved out west to Provo, UT and Denver, CO for 20 years and is actually where he met his wife.

He has also lived in:

  • Casper, WY
  • Santa Maria, CA
  • Houston, TX
  • Mercer Island, WA.

Outside of work, Steve’s hobbies consist of reading over 50 periodicals every month covering a wide range of topics such as history, travel, finance, philosophy, and religion. He enjoys yard work and actually finds it relaxing. In a former life, he was pretty good at chess, racquetball, and playing the piano (all just a distant memory now). Steve has four children and seven grandchildren scattered across the country.

What Steve likes most about his job?

“The people.”
