…leverage learnings from past positions and other Treasurer departments
Stewardship and service are at the center of my life’s purpose
Steve decided to run for Winnebago Treasurer in early December 2021 based on the encouragement of County Leaders after a successful career leading financial institutions and gaining the trust of others after his 13 years on the County’s Finance Committee.

Schultz, 56, is an experienced financial leader who has served on the Winnebago County board (District 3) and their finance and zoning committees since 2008. He held multiple executive roles for 32 years at the headquarters for a group of 1,500 churches. As part of that leadership experience, he successfully managed investments on a large scale, including a $300 million church loan fund and $240 million retirement plan.
Public service in a full time capacity is an obvious next step in a life spent serving organizations that serve others.
Steve wants to bring a whole new level of effective stewardship to the Treasurer’s Office. He has the proven track record to deliver results for taxpayers.
Steve has lived in Winnebago County since 2004. He is the proud father of eight children and grandfather to seven grandkids. Steve is also an active member and volunteer at Stateline Church in Rockford.
