Mike Durkee, CEOMike-Durkee.jpg

Mike Durkee, a Cleveland, Ohio native, grew up with two passions: sports and entrepreneurship. Knowing at a young age that he wanted to own his own business, Mike attended the UNC Charlotte to study business management and marketing, two areas that would serve him well in the decades to come.

At 28, Mike created Durkee Embroidery Hoops, an embroidery hoop manufacturer for industrial embroidery machines. It was the first after-market embroidery hoops manufacturer in the industry and became a multi-million dollar company with 70 distributors around the globe.

Owning and operating his own business provided Mike with valuable insight that he often calls on when working with clients today. He understands and appreciates what fellow business owners face:

  • The marketing challenges
  • The sales pitfalls
  • The everyday business tasks that can cause a company to sputter and stall (when done poorly) or thrive (when done right)

Mike also knows how to successfully navigate all of the above, and he has a keen sense of marketing and sales techniques that deliver results. After all, he was able to test and try out everything on his own business.

In 2010, Mike decided to start a new venture in the Marketing, Print, and Promotional Products industry. Mike’s strong background in sales and marketing has allowed him to focus on growing the business through effective sales processes and strategic business development.

Mike resides in Davidson, North Carolina, with his daughter and son.
