"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." This Charles Darwin quote inspires Steve as he drives change in the A/E/C industry.

Steve Winchester is the former CEO and CFO of Harris & Associates from 2021 through 2023. Steve also held leadership positions at the firm from 2016 including COO and Division President.

An executive and board member with over 30 years of experience, including two tenures as a CEO at other firms, Steve led Harris with a vast knowledge of the A/E/C industry, a track record of transformative leadership, and a strong vision for the future. He provided strategic oversight perfectly suited to expanding Harris' role as a trusted advisor to its clients.

Steve complements his well-rounded business and leadership acumen with expertise in managing projects involving water, wastewater, water reuse, stormwater and biosolids, from small diameter pipelines to large treatment facilities.

Throughout his career, Steve has excelled at building and growing businesses both organically and through mergers and acquisitions. Here’s how a colleague summed up one of Steven's proudest accomplishments: "He helped develop a vision for a $250 million business that doubled its size. He transitioned it to a truly global business a decade before most of the competition."

Why Harris?

The culture and the people of Harris is what made me desire to work here and why I believe clients wish to work with us.
