I am very happy to introduce myself to Environmental Initiative’s members and community. My name is Steve Quist and I’m happy to join Environmental Initiative as their new Chief Financial Officer. I’m looking forward to continuing and contributing to the tradition of exceptional financial management that helps Environmental Initiative make an important impact on our community’s complex environmental problems.
I come to Environmental Initiative with 25 years of operations and financial management experience, the last 12 of which I’ve spent in the social equality nonprofit community. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Augsburg College in Public Accounting and a Master of Science degree in Accountancy from St. Mary’s University. An emphasis of my studies has been nonprofit and community financial sustainability, which seems a natural complement to Environmental Initiative’s vision: a healthy environment, prosperous economy, and equitable society.
My wife, three boys and I live in a rural south metro community that is quickly becoming a suburb. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family and outdoors enjoying the changing Minnesota seasons— specifically golfing, fishing, and hiking. I look forward to meeting our members and partners! I’m available if you want to introduce yourself, have news or information to share, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612.334.3388 ext. 8114.
