My name is Steve Urquhart, and I’ve recently joined the Orange County Clerk of Courts as manager of organization development and strategic planning.
On a personal note, I am happily married (my wife, Micha and I celebrated our 17th anniversary this year) and we’ve lived in Orlando for about 15 years. I try to stay involved in community and civic affairs as much as time allows, and these are just a few of the projects and initiatives I am working on now: Rollins College President’s Leadership Council; Florida Chamber Foundation Six Pillars Caucus (founding member, Talent Supply & Education Caucus and Innovation Caucus); Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando; and VETsourcing – training and transition services for veterans.

It’s simple, but it’s not easy.
