Hi, I am" Uncle" Mike! Being the oldest employee at Creative Foundations here is a brief Bio of my past experience. (If I can be brief lol). I have served in the United States Army for 2 years and had a 1 year tour in Vietnam. While in the military for a short time I was promoted to a Sgt. and received the Bronze Star Award for my outstanding duties performed in Vietnam. As for my education I received an Associates Degree from Columbus State in Business Management. I have lived in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana as Director of Sales and Marketing in the insurance industry. During this time I received the highest sales award, The President Council, for 4 years in a row as the top sales person in my region. After leaving the insurance industry I decided to move to North Carolina to be close to my brother and his family and then I got interested in the food and beverage industry. I was the restaurant manager of a famous North Carolina BBQ restaurant in the mountains of Linville Falls, NC. While living there for 5 years I decided to come back home to be with my father and family. After his passing, and being single, an opportunity became available to partner with a company that sold motor cross sports equipment and decided to move to West Virginia. Everyone there owns an ATV or dirt bike. LOL
After being there for 5 months a fire started in our building and we lost everything. My partner also had a company that repaired tractor trailers so I became the shop and office manager of his business. After being in WV for 7 years I really missed my nephews, nieces, and my sister who was ill. I decided to move back again to Columbus to help out with my sister. An opportunity became available at Creative Foundations for a driver in transportation in which this is where I started at CF. After doing this for 10 months a position opened in the Marketing Division and here I am. I really enjoy working with the individuals and looking forward on expanding their exposure in the community and getting their art work sold. I will be handling the trade shows, art festivals, provider fairs, and any other events that will help our business to expand. In addition to the marketing, I will also be overseeing the transportation department.
I look forward every day to go to work because Creative Foundations has made me part of their family!
