Steve Kirin - Chief Executive Officer
A true entrepreneurial spirit, Steve brings an unmatched passion and drive to NCBTMB with extensive knowledge in business administration, marketing, operations, sales, software development, human resources and more—empowering him to stop nothing short of restructuring the organization to further live up to its mission with a core focus on certification.
Steve began his NCBTMB journey as Chief Operating Officer in 2011. Soon after, in 2013, he was elevated to Chief Executive Officer. From the very start, Steve has made it his personal mission to audit and restructure all facets of the organization to achieve greater efficiencies, financial stability, and purpose within the profession. He has embraced “steering the ship” through uncharted waters with bold decisions to exit licensure, partner with an international specialist examination board, and introduce specialty certificates, among many other notable achievements.
With a BA Degree in Business Administration and Marketing from North Central College, Steve has since pursued and thrived in multiple high-level, executive positions in the international airline, biometric security, housing, music, and software development industries. His well-rounded background is proof of his passion for great communication, identifiable and measurable goals, and efficient operations.
When he’s not working, Steve is a talented and dedicated musician. For over thirty years, Steve and his band have had the pleasure to perform all over the country—and he doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon! He also enjoys sports and spending quality time with his family.
