Steve is a lifetime resident of Ann Arbor, with the exception of a five-year stint in San Diego. He is married to Becky (Snyder) from Dexter; the couple has two teenage daughters.
Ann Arbor State Bank is an exciting enterprise coming at a time when it is most needed for the community. The focus on customer service and the ability to help the small businessperson is the same mission we have at Kleinschmidt Insurance. Contributing as a board member is one of the highlights of my business life, and I am committed to helping the Bank and the community.
Steve earned his Bachelor’s degree in computer science, with an Associate’s degree in business. He studied at both Michigan State University and Coleman College in San Diego. In San Diego, Steve worked as a traveling trainer for medical billing software at National Medical Computer Systems and managed the customer support department. In 1991, he and Becky returned to Ann Arbor and Steve purchased Kleinschmidt Insurance with his sister. As President, they built the business through acquisition and organic growth. In 2007, Steve purchased his sister’s share of the business; he is now the sole owner.
Over the past 18 years, the Kleinschmidts have been involved with, or donated to, many of the charities serving the Ann Arbor area. Steve is also a member of the Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce, the Home Builders Association, the West Washtenaw Business Association, and the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, to name a few.
