Hi, I’m Steve
And I recently graduated from the University of Oregon M.S. Sports Product Management Program
I’m currently seeking a mid-to-senior level marketing, merchandising, or PLM position at a domestic outdoor or running brand whose values align to my own.
I believe that sport develops character and is a catalyst for growth.
Quality, purpose-driven products enable athletes to obtain the most from their experience – becoming better versions of themselves.
Remain authentically loving, compassionate, patient and respectful.
Be honest. Be ethical. Be fair.
Curiosity + Risk = Growth
Focus on meaningful actions and work with meaningful people and organizations.
Find a tribe or found a tribe – those are the only options.
“Getting started at a new agency can be tough. Luckily, I was hired as a part of Steve’s team, and he quickly took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. Steve is universally well-liked, multitalented, a strong team player, and incredibly intelligent – everything you’d hope for in a boss and coworker. But what makes Steve stand out from the rest is his innate ability to consistently go above and beyond the traditional expectations of a boss – patiently training, coaching, and mentoring me, offering support and encouragement when needed, but also giving constructive feedback to ensure I was operating at my highest potential. I can honestly say that Steve’s guidance helped shape me into the person I am today, and, as a manager with a team of my own now, I emulate Steve as often as possible, hoping to make half the impression that he had on me. I could go on, but my point is this: any company would be extremely lucky to have Steve, and if you’re considering him for a position, I strongly recommend you hire him as soon as possible – before someone else beats you to it.”
“I had the pleasure of working very closely with Steve McQuaide. He is an excellent leader, manager, coach, marketer and strategist. Steve is extremely client-focused, and does a great job creating and implementing custom promotions and SEO strategies for his clients. As the head of the Promotions team, Steve fostered an environment of continuous improvement, and always made it a priority to be available to team members to offer advice and help. With the ever-changing SEO landscape, he constantly adapted the Promotions team to the variations in the industry. Steve is a persistent advocate for his team by promoting the team’s successes and abilities to provide maximum value to clients. I was extremely fortunate to work with Steve, and it would be my pleasure to work with him again.”
