Mike founded the company in 1996 and has since continued to lead it under the same guiding principle: transparent actions and honest relationships. Prior to starting the company, Mike worked in a variety of human resource and customer service roles with several organizations, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Tradesmen International, Inc. Mike is renowned for putting his clients first and making their jobs easier.
Over the last two-plus decades, Mike has seen GMS’ clientele grow ten-fold. He thoroughly enjoys working with his clients and hearing about their successes. Like Mike, most of GMS' clients have built their companies from the ground up. He considers himself and his clients to be one in the same as they are all determined business owners whose success depends on one another.

Founding GMS is one of Mike’s greatest accomplishments along with raising three children - Jake, Mikey, and Kelsey. Mike currently resides in Bath Township, Ohio. During his free time, Mike enjoys reading, watching his favorite sports teams, and woodworking. Mike graduated from Kent State University in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in political science. Mike concludes, “treat others the way you want to be treated and leave the world a better place.”
