Fun Fact: The red "i" in the Knipper logo is there to remind Steve of a politician he met who talked only of himself. Steve incorporated the red "i" into his logo to remind himself that he's running to serve the people, and politics is not all about him.
Steve grew up in Edgewood as the youngest of six children. He attended Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills and went on to graduate with Honors from Northern Kentucky University. Steve has over 15 years of experience leading teams on both the business side and the information technology side of several businesses, including S&P 500 and Fortune 200 Corporations. In addition, he has a vast knowledge of the healthcare sector which he worked in for over seven years.
Steve was a member of the Erlanger City Council where he served as Co-Chair of the Finance Committee. During his tenure, Steve cut spending without cutting services, thus creating a budgetary surplus equal to nine months of revenue. In addition, Steve served as a member of the Kenton County Board of Adjustments. He is a Kentucky Colonel and a member of Lakeside Christian Church.
Today, Steve and his wife, Stephanie, live in Independence with their six children.
