Mr. A Steven Raab
A. Steven Raab is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The InSource Group, a Dallas-based company that provides a full range of technology resources including technical staff, project solutions and outsourcing services. The InSource Group helps companies and people perform better together, bridging the gap between potential and performance. The InSource Group was founded in 1992. In 1995, in conjunction with the founder of InSource, Steven started a company whose mission was to provide interim technical staff to companies on a project basis, a service that InSource did not provide. Later that year, the two companies merged to form The InSource Group.
Steven has a long and diverse management and sales background in the technical, financial, and real estate industries. He began his technical career at IBM, where he held various line and staff management positions in sales and vertical industry markets over a period of 17 years.
