Steve Bollinger

April 3, 2022
Steve Bollinger, Pro Builder Forty Under 40 class of 2022

Before he got into home building, Steve Bollinger pursued a number of passions, including working at wineries in California and New Zealand, traveling throughout Southeast Asia, biking across the U.S., and working as a ranch hand.

After earning a degree in business and urban planning, he found home building, if not completely by accident: his father, who died before Bollinger was born, served as assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) during the Reagan administration.

Since joining Thrive Companies eight years ago, Bollinger has worked to revive neglected areas through brownfield development. Among those projects is Quarry Trails, a mixed-use development on 80 acres carved out from a total of 607 acres, including a municipal park and (no surprise) a quarry; and the Rapid 5 Project, which seeks to develop an open space network for recreation, education, and wellness activities while preserving an existing series of waterways.

During his tenure, the company has grown from 15 employees to 107.
