|Info||Family man, business owner, and unapologetic conservative Steve Braun is ready to lead as our next state representative. Born and raised in Southern Indiana Steve is a proud fourth generation Hoosier. Steve learned the value of hard work and personal responsibility at an early age from his father Amos Braun who was a tail gunner in World War II. After WWII Amos returned to Jasper, Indiana to build a successful wood office furniture business and raise a family with his wife Laverne Braun. Steve attributes his character to the disciplined yet very loving home his parents built for him and his siblings. |
In his formative years Steve committed himself as a student and an athlete. Steve’s hard work paid off as he became an all-state wide receiver and upon graduation was proud to be the first student from Jasper, IN to attend Harvard. Steve embraced the challenges of attending an Ivy League school, and again his hard work paid off as the prestigious Price Waterhouse immediately hired him after graduating from Harvard.
Steve’s career as a business executive and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start his own technology company when many of the information and technological tools we use today were still in their infancy. Through Steve’s vision and hard work the company grew to 13 national offices and 750 employees. Steve’s business was an overwhelming success and in 1999 Steve took the company public. However, Steve continues to create jobs right here in Indiana. Braun remains very active, as an entrepreneur, he is engaged in tech companies as an angel investor and he also owns businesses in real estate and agriculture.
While Steve Braun has always felt fortunate and humbled by the successes he has experienced in his business endeavors, family has always come first. Steve and his wife Jennifer of 29 years are proud to have five children who are carving their path in the world. The Braun family continues to grow as Steve and Jennifer will soon welcome their first grandchild.
Steve Braun has spent his life committed to family and community. Now, Steve realizes a need in the halls of government for executive style leadership that will restore our founding principles of limited government and personal freedom. As our next state representative Steve Braun will focus on these core beliefs and be a representative that will put taxpayers first in every decision he makes
