Educators Consulting Services (ECS) was founded in 2000 by Steven A. Fate. At its inception, ECS’s primary goal was to assist schools in managing their fixed assets and EIS systems.

ECS now focuses predominantly on helping school districts find the most economical employee benefits program suitable for their district’s unique needs. Our current client base includes over thirty school districts and one consortium, for which we provide employee benefit consulting services.

IMG_0079 (2)Steve is an Ohio native and has spent his entire life in the central Ohio area. Steve’s philosophy, both in life and in career, is to treat others as he wishes to be treated. In his business, that means a focus on customer service, ensuring that his clients’ needs are satisfied with one phone call to him, rather than an unending series of calls to automated voice messages. As a result of his resolute work ethic, Steve founded his own company, Educators Consulting Services (ECS), in 2000, and he finds professional satisfaction in serving clients who appreciate his dedication to their needs.  Steve has been able to save his typical client much more than they would expect to pay for his services.

Prior to founding ECS, Steve spent 15 years working in sales, the bulk of those years with Employee Security Plans, establishing and maintaining valuable relationships in the insurance industry and in Ohio’s schools districts. These relationships permit Steve unique access to decision-makers and ultimately serve the best interests of his clients. However, Steve’s interests are vast and varied and extend well beyond his “day job.”

Steve appreciates any opportunity to be outdoors and active. He enjoys traveling, hiking, mountain biking, sailing, and racquetball, just to name a few. He and his family continue to reside in the Columbus area.
