From 1998 through 2001, Steve was the chief executive officer of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association, representing the entrepreneurial sector of the medical device industry. He led the association's engagement with Congress and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during implementation of the landmark FDA Modernization Act of 1997. Steve also led the industry's effort to bring more transparency to Medicare's process for making national coverage determinations, which resulted in the creation of what is now known as the Medicare Evidence Development and Coverage Advisory Committee. Steve is a sought-after public speaker, having already this year spoken at the 20th Annual Healthcare Business Conference at the Wharton School of Business, and the Care Innovation Summit 2014 (hosted by the Aspen Institute and the Advisory Board Company). He also recently co-authored a chapter in a Food and Drug Law Institute publication on the past and future of the various FDA user fee programs. In his spare time, Steve plays the saxophone and sings in "Blame It On Jane," a popular local rock band that has entertained crowds at multiple inaugural balls, Democratic and Republican retreats, and political fundraisers for numerous House and Senate members.
