Steve Urban isn't just an established leader; he's a crisis management expert with a penchant for turnarounds. With a storied career as the Founder and CEO of Recruiting & Consulting Firm Riderflex—a top-rated firm known for cultural fit staffing—Steve has continually exhibited a rare aptitude for matching talent with opportunity. He also serves as Co-Owner of Kura Home Maintenance in Colorado and Presley Rose Investments, a residential real estate venture he co-manages with his wife, Kim Urban.

Long before the inception of Riderflex, Steve had been orchestrating operational miracles. He served as CEO, COO and President of multiple companies with revenues exceeding $40 million, specializing in retail, wholesale, and service industries. His operational wizardry led to numerous company revivals, making him a sought-after talent for crisis management, restructuring, downsizing, and transitions.

Known as a thought leader, Steve ventured into the podcasting sphere with the Riderflex Podcast, which rapidly gained acclaim for its entrepreneur-focused content and career advice. He further expanded his influence by authoring "The Riderflex Guide" series, a valuable resource for both hiring managers and job candidates. His latest book, "Mastering Job Interviews," has garnered rave reviews as an essential guide for job seekers.

When Steve is not immersed in his professional pursuits, he lives for the family and the great outdoors. A loving husband, father, and grandfather, Steve replenishes his soul through camping and overlanding, guided by his life mantra: “I want my life to be dictated by the experiences I’m chasing.”

Steve's wealth of experience is now available for strategic consulting and interim executive positions, specifically at the CEO or COO level for small to mid-sized companies. His expertise is especially beneficial for organizations grappling with crises, transitions, layoffs, downsizing, or restructuring.

Steve Urban is not just an accomplished business leader; he is a resource available for your business's critical transitions. Tap into his multifaceted expertise for career coaching, speaking engagements, advisory roles, board of director positions, and more.
