Meet the Director of the FIA Surety School

Steve Golia

Steve Golia is a veteran surety producer, underwriter, author and instructor.  

Over the course of the last 40+ years he has held a range of industry positions of responsibility including that of underwriter, bond manager, branch manager, and company officer for Aetna C&S, CNA, Mountbatten Surety, Amwest and FIA Surety.

As a producer, in addition to owning a bonding agency, he has worked for Johnson & Higgins, Haas & Haas, and was a nationally recognized “President’s Club” top producer at Bollinger.

Steve’s original career was teaching, which may explain his love for sharing information about surety bonds – a subject that is mysterious and vexing to many professionals.

Prior to the arrival of the internet, he established a long history of bond instruction through hundreds of classes and seminars that have been delivered for the Federal Government, Universities, Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, and several other public and private bodies.

Steve is a participating author for the Associate in Fidelity and Surety Bonding (AFSB) designation.

5 star online review: “I bought this book a few weeks ago and just finished reading it. I have 50 years in the Surety business and I can say without reservation, “Secrets of Bonding” is one of the best primers I have ever read on the subject. Excellent resource for anyone in the Surety industry or anyone looking to enter the industry. Steve Golia knows the business and has the ability to teach it to others!”
