Steve Lenox

Founder and President

With a professional background that includes stints as state director to U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, legislative affairs coordinator for the New Jersey State AFL-CIO, and chief of staff to Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein, Steve launched Lenox Consulting in 2010.

Since then, building on close relationships he has developed and cultivated with elected officials, business and labor leaders, and other key decision makers, Steve has built a portfolio of clients that have included prominent advocacy organizations, property developers, local governments, and growing businesses.

In 2020 Steve launched Oasis Media, under which he serves as publisher for six TAPinto hyperlocal news sites. With a growing team of six full-time local reporters and community outreach coordinators, Oasis Media has successfully returned reliable local news coverage to nine New Jersey communities with a total population of over 700,000 residents. In 2023 readership on these sites has generated nearly five million page views and are the highest revenue-generating franchises in the network of more than 90 sites.

In August 2022 Steve was named the Director of the New Jersey Ireland Center. Launched following the successful trade mission led by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy in April 2022, the office, under the direction of Choose New Jersey, cultivates international investment and provides resources to Irish companies to identify and explore opportunities for growth in North America.

Steve also serves as president of Irish Network USA, a 501c3 organization with a mission of growing engagement among the “Global Irish” through business, culture, education, and sports
