Steve Henke

President and Chief Strategist

Steve has spent his 30+ year career focused almost entirely on marketing and sales. Even in executive management roles, the growth of his companies has always been his #1 priority. His background includes marketing & sales staff and management positions in several industries, and he brings that depth and breadth of experience to every client he works with. Before starting Harpeth Marketing, he was President of 20|20 Research, and before that, EVP and COO of Aegis Marketing Group. To see Steve’s full background, visit his LinkedIn profile.

Steve was born in Pennsylvania, grew up in Maryland, and now lives in Franklin, TN with his wife, Lisa. He has two grown children and three grandchildren. In his spare time, you’ll find him outdoors – hiking, trail running, biking, fishing or playing tennis.

Fun fact: Even though Steve has spent his entire career in and around marketing and sales roles, back in the day, he earned his B.S. degree in Chemistry from Washington College in Chestertown, MD!
