American Building and Roofing, Inc. is a family-owned company and our employees and customers make it successful. During the months of August and September, we’re introducing our managers and sharing a little information about them.
We start with our General Managers of each of the seven ABR Branch locations.
Our first interview brings you our Eastern Washington Operations Manager Mike Ihly; who also serves our customers as the branch manager of our Yakima store (pictured far right).
For twenty years Mike has been with our company and oversees our branches in Yakima, Pasco, and Wenatchee. Mike provides both our company and ABR customers with the benefits of his winning attitude, effective leadership, and extensive and valuable knowledge of our products and services.
Rather than sticking to a stuffy business interview that nobody reads, we asked Mike to tell a few things about himself.
Mike, how would you describe yourself in one word? Organized
What is the favorite part of your job as Manager? Turning problems into positive solutions
What was your first job? Dishwasher
What is your favorite music band/artist? Lynyrd Skynyrd
What’s your favorite movie or book? Lonesome Dove
What do you like to do for fun? Rodeo, Fish, Hunt and anything outdoors
What makes you really happy? My Family
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? Hawaii, I missed out going with my family. Wish now that I would have gone.
How would your friends describe you? I don’t know you would have to ask them.
What does a perfect day look like to you? Any day above ground is a perfect day!
What are you truly passionate about? My Family
We thank Mike for his 20+ years of service and hope you can stop by and say hello. Maybe he’ll tell you a few of his favorite fishing stories!
Let Mike and his team help you with your roofing and siding needs.
