Chief Financial Officer
Steve serves as the CFO for Central Exchange. His background includes a long career in Corporate World with Sprint/Embarq to owning a small business while attending the University of Kansas. The responsibility of running a small business has strong similarities to the scale of CX.
The Corporate World gave Steve many opportunities to lead large groups of employees in Training, Payroll, Customer Experience, Vendor Contracts, Finance and HR. In all of these roles, Steve’s Business and Accounting background were key in delivering the necessary outcomes.
Steve lives in Overland Park area with his family but you will often see him downtown enjoying the rebirth of downtown KC. He enjoys spending more of his time learning new skills like woodworking and small construction while in this semi-retirement phase of his life.

Digging into our database, programming, member recruitment and cultivation are all areas Mona enhances.

A six-year CX member, Mona enthusiasm has only grown since joining Team CX. “Over the years I’ve met amazing women who have challenged me, supported me, motivated me, and taught me. They’ve also helped me develop my strengths and given me the courage to do things I might not have otherwise done.”
