Steve Breitkreuz has lived in South Florida since he was a teenager. In 1995, he and his wife, Denise, and their three daughters moved to their current home in what was then unincorporated Broward County. In 2000 this area became what we know as Southwest Ranches. He participated in that transition and has been active in the community in many ways. That participation included involvement with the HOAs and Civic Associations in Town as well as numerous Town boards. In 2006, he was elected to the Town Council District 1 where he served for the next 12 years. In 2020, he was elected as Mayor.
Steve has undergraduate degrees in Finance and Computer Systems from the University of Miami as well as an MBA in Finance from Baylor University. During his career, he has worked in a number of different industries, but always focusing on technology and financial systems, with a goal toward process improvement. He has worked to apply those skills here within our Town as well, striving for efficiencies and improvements in all of our government services. The Town of Southwest Ranches is a diverse community, with common goals of independence, protection of personal property rights and a dedication to the rural lifestyle that originally brought so many of our residents to this area. Steve’s dedication to serve as Mayor comes from a strong desire to ensure that these principles are perpetuated forward for future generations.
