Steve Lewis was born in the UK and lived there for the early years of his life. He went to a sports high school and university, where he was a member of the British Athletics Performance Program for young athletes. His specialization in the pole vault took Steve all over the world, visiting over 40 countries. He signed a professional contract with Nike as a 19-year-old and went on to win many national and international medals. He is considered the most successful British pole-vaulter of all time as the former national record holder and two-time olympian. During his athletics career, Steve was involved in many start-ups, and his entrepreneurial abilities started to shine with his eye for detail and relentless work ethic. Steve moved to the US in 2013 on an extraordinary ability visa to teach and build a sports business. After becoming a permanent resident, he founded Maverick Coffee, Paradise Valley’s premium coffee hotspot. His work in the community is significant to him; in 2018, he organized 12 small charity events and raised thousands of dollars for charities in the local area. Recently, Steve has used his background and knowledge in high performance to lead a research company that supports a charity for active military members, Veterans, and their entire support networks to improve their health and wellness. The team behind Steve are his wife Leah and 3 boys, Eli, Jett, and Axel. If you are looking to get to know Steve, make sure you do it on the golf course!
