Las Vegas, NV (March 2nd, 2016)  After 11 years working devotedly as a sales manager for Snorkel, Mike Stevenson, a resident of Grapevine, TX, retired on January 15, 2016.

Mike joined Snorkel after 20 years experience with aerial work platforms. He previously held the position of Regional Sales Manager at Genie from 1999 to 2001. Prior to that role he held management positions at Grove Manlift, Mark Industries and American Hi-Lift.  He joined Snorkel in 2005, and has been responsible for sales to rental companies and end users in the South Central region.

Matthew Elvin, CEO, Snorkel, said, “Mike has been a key member of the Snorkel sales team for many years, and is well known within the industry.  An exceptional salesman, Mike has recently used his experience and product knowledge to help train and mentor our expanding sales team, ensuring his legacy will live on at Snorkel.  On behalf of the entire team, I wish Mike the very best for his retirement – it is well deserved.”  

Reflecting on his experience at Snorkel, Mike said, “It has been my profound privilege to spend 30 years in an industry that I dearly love. My years at Snorkel have been like working with family. Through all the past difficulties we stayed together and focused on our customers. I only wish I was a little younger and had time to stay and see the wonderful things in store for the team. It is time for me to step aside and let some of these great young men and women take this business to the next level.”

Mike also commented on how being surrounded by wonderful people made it a pleasure to go to work each day and how he made friendships that will last a lifetime. He also considered competitors to have been friends as well.

Don Ahern, Owner, Snorkel, added, “I have known Mike for many years, and I think of him as a friend.  He was one of the reasons that I was excited to get involved with Snorkel back in 2013.  An excellent salesman, he is also a true gentleman.”

In his retirement, Mike plans to slow down the pace of his life and enjoy the fruits of all his hard work. He looks forward to spending lots of time with his grandchildren, watching them grow into great adults.
