Steichen assumed the role in March, succeeding Michele Ridings, who is set to retire later this year.

In his new position, Steichen will be responsible for overseeing accounting operations, gathering and analyzing financial data, preparing financial reports and working closely with management. He brings more than 16 years of experience in various fields, including banking, oil and gas, real estate management and event marketing.

“It is great to have a new talented person to support our growth strategy,” says Gijs Majoor, CEO of GEC. “We are very excited to have him on board.”

Having previously served in the finance sector, Steichen has developed a passion for resolving issues, streamlining processes, partnering with businesses and leveraging technology, qualities that GEC says align with its strategy and vision.

“What drew me to the company was the energetic atmosphere and the emphasis placed on the customers and vendors,” says Steichen. “I look forward to continuing the traditions and providing valuable insight to help the company’s strategy.”

Steichen obtained his undergraduate degree in finance and general business from Oklahoma State University and is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration at the University of Denver, with a concentration in finance.
