Steve Rotay

CEO / Owner

A US Marine Corps veteran, Steve also earned his degree at Millersville University before working in international sales for a global company. The company forced Steve into a role of solving problems for large process customers all across the U.S. The interaction was in the field with the installers and with the executive staff with business details.

In 1996, he started his first real business, Rotay Technical Solutions (RTS), and sold industrial automation and installation.

In 2000, Steve bought a Paul Davis Franchise-it was just him and a truck. He grew the business to 150 people and 60 vehicles when he sold it in 2015 and agreed to stay on as consultant/partner for another 3 years. The company remained in the top 5 offices in the country.

In 2018 Rotay Capital Finance was established offering businesses financial options to traditional banking. The company has provided creative solutions to numerous business across the U.S. while growing the office in Central PA. The office continues to expand into various niches in business financing with the staff becoming experts in their field.

In 2020, the RedBox+ franchise was added to the services provided by the company. RedBox+ offers a patented dumpster and portable toilet service.

Steve grew up in Bridgeport, PA but has lived in Lancaster, PA since 1988 with his wife Melissa. They have 2 grown daughters.

Steve’s hobby is really business; He enjoy all aspects of business. Being engaged with other business professional provides interest and challenges his many years of experience.

However, he does spend lots of time with a small circle of family on his “down time.” It really doesn’t matter what they’re doing, just being together is enough. Finally, anything around water brings peace to Steve- boating, fishing, relaxing.

Over the last decade, Steve’s volunteer efforts have been focused around events and charitable contributions. A multitude of non-profits in the Lancaster County area have benefited from Steve and Melissa’s personal or financial contribution over the last decade. Either through their personal efforts or via companies he has operated. Since starting and growing a local business, Steve and his family have contributed well into seven figures in charitable contributions and efforts. Steve’s mantra developed when he first established his professional career, “Success is being part of a community, not just taking from it.” Lives on today.

Steve has competed in a “Fireman’s Challenge” event to raise money for Fire Companies.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”― Theodore Roosevelt
