CTG Co-Founder Steven McCormick Dies at 56
Steven Eugene McCormick passed away February 20, 2019. McCormick worked in entertainment and engineering before co-founding CTG in Atlanta, which he grew over the following 25 years into an industry-leading company.
Born January 28, 1963 in Tallahassee, Florida, McCormick was the son of Gene and the late June McCormick. He grew up in Tampa and attended Chamberlain High School where he was active in drama and debate groups. After high school, McCormick worked at Six Flags over Georgia where he earned the nickname “Speedy.” He graduated magna cum laude from Georgia State University with a degree in Commercial Music and Recording.
McCormick embraced life. He loved to travel; a few of his favorite destinations were Spain, the Caribbean, and Hawaii. He was a lifelong self-proclaimed “techie” and was active in the Atlanta sections of the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers and the Audio Engineering Society, as well as PSNI. He lived with purpose, determination and demonstrated an affability and dry humor that made everyone around him comfortable. He was smart, genuine, unrelentingly inquisitive, and a natural teacher and mentor. Whether it was to family, a friend, or a colleague, he shared his knowledge willingly, patiently and Thoroughly.
McCormick loved his family and is survived by his wife, Lisa, daughter Miranda, and son Riley of Marietta, father Gene of Tampa, brother Michael (Ellie) of Douglasville, sister Melissa (Dave) of Tampa, and eight nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the McCormick family kindly asks that donations be made in Steve’s name to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
