Steve has been an Agent and Financial Advisor with Farm Bureau Financial Services since March 1995, following a 16-year career in banking where he was involved in agricultural and commercial lending throughout the Southwestern United States.

Steve’s belief in service and giving back to his community dates to his childhood and the examples provided by his father, Al Goucher. Growing up in Parker, Arizona, Steve became involved in 4-H, FFA and student organizations in grade school. FFA made such an impact on his life that he remains committed to this organization having been on the Board of Trustees of the Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation since 2005. He is currently their Past President and a member of their Executive Committee.

Steve’s leadership has been recognized through various company awards, but most notably by GAMA International.  Throughout his years in leadership, Steve was the recipient of the GAMA International Management Award at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond levels. He has been identified as an Arizona Elite Producer at Farm Bureau Financial Services and is a proud member of the Million Dollar Round Table.

Through these experiences, Steve has built a strong foundation in finance and business management along with a large professional network, while remaining ardent about giving back to his community and the organizations that helped shape his life. Being recognized with the Raymond J. Martinez Community Service Award is something Steve is exceptionally proud of.
