Stephen O’Neil, a third generation Californian, grew up in Palos Verdes Estates, attended Valmonte, Malaga Cove and Dapplegrey elementary schools, and was in the first graduating class of Palos Verdes High School. After graduating from USC with a degree in business administration, Steve pursued a long career in finance and money management. Steve’s many accomplishments include Security Traders Association, Chairman of the Board 2000, National Association of Investment Professionals, Secretary of the Board of Directors, and Security Traders Association of Los Angeles President 1990.
Always remembering what a special place Palos Verdes is, he located his family first in Rancho Palos Verdes, then 38 years ago moved back to PVE and has been here ever since. Steve realizes that what sets PVE apart as such an exceptional and unique city, is in good part due to the careful citywide planning set in place at its founding almost 100 years age. It is this attention and deliberate city planning that Steve hopes to help maintain as a PVHA Director.
