This biography was prepared in 2006. You might say Steve is a “native” of Green Valley Ranch. When he and his wife, Marilyn, moved to the Horizons sub-division, the Ranch was a mere six months old. By the end of 1997, the residential proportion of the Ranch warranted that the GVRCA elect two GVR homeowners to the board. Along with the America Nevada Corporation representatives, they would make up the GVR Board of Directors.
Steve is admired for his attention to detail and his commitment to getting the job done. As a result, he has been the GVRCA treasurer since he was first elected to the board in January of 1998. Due to his diligence, many homeowner dollars have been saved over the years. Along with his day-to-day work for the association, Steve prepares the GVRCA annual budget.
Steve has 37 years of top-management experience in the accounting and financial profession. He holds BSBA and MSA degrees. In addition, he has 30 credit hours of post-graduate work in Management and Marketing.
Steve retired in 1993. The Arkows celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary this year. With the time afforded to him through retirement and his vast body of knowledge, Steve is a “treasured” member of the GVRCA Board of Directors.
