Introduction to Steve Proia by Bill Wethe, Chairman of FAC

Steve is the newest volunteer to join the Finance Advisory Committee (FAC) as a result of the Board approving the FAC recommendation to add Steve to the FAC at its Board meeting on January 29.

Steve has been a resident of our community since November 2012, commuting to Pasadena to work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) on Monday’s and returning to Sun City Shadow Hills (SCSH) at the end of each week until he retired in February of 2015. In his 32 years at JPL, Steve was involved in a broad range of administrative activities and spent the last 5 years as the Lab’s Chief Financial Officer and Director for Business Operations.

Steve spent the last couple of years unwinding from his career, playing golf, spending time with friends, and thoroughly enjoying everything that SCSH has to offer. Steve even met his fiancé, Diane, at a concert on the Shadow Hills driving range and the two will be married in February.

After relaxing for a couple of years, Steve realized he needed more to fill his time than golf. He recently got his Real Estate license and is working for HK Lane part-time. Steve volunteered for the FAC to help the community remain strong for years to come. He believes that his background in finance, contracts, and facilities management is helpful to the committee. In addition, Steve is also a member of the Board of Directors for a Credit Union with assets of $1.6 billon.

Steve has already attended the FAC special meeting on December 27, 2017 as well as the FAC regular meeting on January 19.

Please join us in welcoming Steve to the FAC!
