Steve Shulze



Ever heard of a “musician’s musician?” Now imagine being an accountant to accountants–and at one of the most respected firms in the region.

That’s Steve Shulze, Senior Director and Controller at Clark Nuber. It may seem high-pressure, but Steve takes it all in stride. “Because of the great variety of what I do–from supervising the internal accounting staff to planning operational strategy–it never gets dull. Plus, the people here are truly great.” While he has an impeccable eye for numbers and financial strategy as a lifelong student of accounting, Steve is also a passionate “foodie” and you would be right if you guessed that the Food Network is always on at his house.
