Steve Taylor is a Chicago native who moved north to Green Bay in the 1970s and never looked back. He played basketball for the Phoenix at UW-Green Bay, found a home here, and has since distinguished himself in service to his alma mater and community. Steve is a financial representative for the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. He joined Northwestern Mutual in De Pere in 1987 after several years as a senior buyer for the J.C. Penney Company. Taylor's involvement with his alma mater is significant. He volunteers time as a career mentor for current UW-Green Bay students and serves on the board of the Phoenix Fund in support of intercollegiate athletics. The UW-Green Bay Alumni Association recognized Steve Taylor with the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2003 and Steve spoke to an attentive audience of new graduates as the May 2010 Commencement speaker. Steve established two endowed scholarships as planned gifts in 2014. The scholarships will provide support to student-athletes and students studying the arts.
