Fire Protection and Military Service Help Mike Sturbaum at H&S

Mike Sturbaum Sr.’s experience in fire protection and the U.S. military served as a perfect backdrop for his introduction to the security industry with H&S Protection. After serving in the U.S. Army for eight years, active and in the reserves, he took a position with FedEx Ground as a driver for 17 years.

From there, Mike worked in fire protection with JF Ahern, Fire Alarms, PE Systems, Sprinkler Systems and Special Hazards, before finding his way to H&S Protection. Initially, an Indeed ad led him to H&S, and he then followed up with Mike Solomon in our Pewaukee, WI office with an official interview, and has now been with H&S for a year and three months.

His previous fire protection and military background help him in his position as a Service Technician. “Our technicians and installers always find a way to get the job done or problem solved, and keep the customer happy,” he observed.

He’s found that on a daily basis he recommends H&S to others as he talks to family and friends. “The one aspect I always bring up is that we are a needle in the haystack type of company. While we may not be huge or well known, we impress people with our knowledge and customer service,” Mike said.

Mike’s family consists of his wife Christy, Michael, Jr., who is 18 and recently graduated from Muskego High School, and Caleb, who is 17. Michael, Jr. will be going into the trades (Sprinklers Union) as will Caleb, who has one year left of high school.

In his spare time, Mike enjoys motorcycle riding and playing darts. He plays in various leagues and tournaments on weekends. He’s also considers himself a baseball nerd, and loves going to sporting events.
