He began his career at First Pennsylvania Bank, where he was vice president and fixed income portfolio manager. Prior to joining Provident Capital Management in 1984, Stephen founded Munsch and Smith Management.

Away from work, Steve is a member of the board of trustees at St. Mary's Villa for Children and Families, a provider of services for abused and neglected children, and the Winterthur Museum & Country Estate, a non-profit, educational institution.
