Stephen L. Lyden, President

Steve worked in the construction industry after college, and he has more than 20 years of industry experience. During the last 9 of those years, he owned his own construction company that completed residential and commercial remodeling projects.

Steve was injured in 1994 on a construction site when a 1,000 lb. steel I-beam crushed his leg. Steve was covered by his workers' compensation policy, and after a long and financially painful recovery, he went back to construction. This was short-lived, however, and in 1999 the injury forced him to seek light duty employment. Steve found work with First Cardinal Corporation in Albany, NY as an insurance sales person and excelled. Near the end of 2001, the owner of First Cardinal offered Steve an opportunity to go out on his own, generously allowing him to start his agency with the customer base he had built up as an employee of the insurance company.

Steve started The Lyden Group, LLC in February of 2002 as a workers' compensation broker service. Steve's goal was to help his clients find the very best workers' compensation insurance coverage at the very best prices. Since then, the agency has grown to include all forms of insurance offerings.

Steve currently resides in Clifton Park, NY with his wife Kristin and their children.
