Here at Service Professionals Australia, we would like to extend our congratulations to Matt Michel, who has just been inducted into the Contracting Business 2015 Hall of Fame. Matt has been recognised for his dedication to improving the success potential of plumbing, electrical, and HVAC contractors in his role as co-founder and CEO of The Service Nation Alliance and Service Roundtable.
Throughout his various career stops, from being the head of franchise development for The Dwyer Group’s Aire Serve chain, to joining Decision Analyst as an analyst of the high-tech and telecommunications industries, Matt Michel began to form the idea for the Service Roundtable.
“One Saturday, I sat down with a group of investors, contractors, and consultants, at the offices of Callahan Roach, to brainstorm the industry and the future. I had come up with this idea, and was trying to shop it, and obtain financing.” The financing and support he sought from leading HVAC industry professionals came through, and in 2002, the Service Nation Alliance was born.
Today, the mission of its Service Roundtable division remains the same: to help contractors improve their business and financial performance, leading to a profitable exit strategy; and, to help improve the fortunes of the small contractor, who is underserved and overwhelmed.
