Steve Kean

V.P. Operations & Finance, FootSteps Marketing L.L.C.

Steve has 30+ years of broad-based entrepreneurial management experience with a slant towards operations, accounting, and finance. Much of this experience comes as CFO with numerous companies in the short-term Vacation Rental industry. As a founding partner in Scottsdale Resort Accommodations, Steve was not only integral to the company’s meteoric growth, but to its acquisition by ResortQuest International, Inc. just two years from inception. Steve is particularly excited to now have the opportunity to apply his trade in the Internet Marketing arena with the most talented, dynamic, cohesive, and fun team he could ask for. 

Away from work Steve supports his wonderfully joyful daughter who is attending the University of Colorado at Boulder. Colorado and the Southwest are his allure, and his home, where he also enjoys bicycling, fly-fishing, skiing, golf, reading, and home improvement projects.
