Director of Leadership Development
Steve Boothe, Director of Leadership Development, is the type of person who finds a lesson to be learned in every experience. His first job was sorting empty pop bottles for 50 cents an hour when he was only 13 years old. That first experience in the workforce taught him the value of hard work. Only two weeks after starting his first job, he received a whole 10-cent raise for exhibiting exemplary work ethic. The lesson learned stayed with Steve throughout his over 40-year career and served him well as he moved up the ranks, learning leadership lessons along the way. Now, Steve is passionate about sharing those leadership lessons with contributing team members, supervisors, middle managers, and senior-level leaders. He believes that by sharing his experiences, he can positively contribute to creating the next generation of values-based leaders.
Steve graduated from Colorado Technical University, earning a BSBA with a concentration in project management. He currently volunteers as a mentor and a job coach for teens with special needs or who are in crisis.

So, he spent a year and a half as a vocational job coach at Campbell County School District, helping young people learn the skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Steve has also actively been highly involved as a mentor for the YES House, an organization committed to helping children and families receive essential resources and tools.
Today, Steve serves as the Director of Leadership Development at Peregrine Global Services. Previously a Peregrine leadership workshop participant and contract facilitator, Steve brings a unique perspective and a passion unlike to the role.
