Steve Vanderboom

President and CEO of Pace Analytical

Steve founded Pace in 1978 and is considered an iconic leader in the U.S. environmental testing sector. Having grown Pace from a single Minneapolis location in 1978 to what is today the broadest network of testing capabilities in North America with more than 50 locations, Steve and his team have developed operating procedures and service standards that lead the industry today.

Steve partnered with Aurora in 2016 to further invest in the leading technology and customer responsiveness for which Pace is industry-acclaimed as well as to continue his vision of offering a level of testing service that the most sophisticated industrial, consulting, and governmental customers can secure with no other industry provider. In addition to his team at Aurora, Steve has partnered with independent directors Ray Milchovich, David Chernow, and Mike McLain.
