Mike Malatesta | OwnerShift Coach | Podcaster| Entrepreneur

In my professional career, I’ve founded or co-founded several companies in the waste management industry. I’ve been responsible for operations, sales, finance, strategy, culture, growth, public relations, marketing, and IT. Together, these businesses generated more than $500 million in combined revenue and sold for more than $180 million.

I’ve bootstrapped and worked with private equity. I’ve experienced and navigated through rocky partnerships, aggressive competition, fires, regulators, indictments, negative press, deaths, and just about every human relations issue.

In addition to my involvement in 2 successful exits, I’ve also been involved in acquiring [the easy part] and integrating [the hard part] more than 20 companies. I know what it takes to make them work [or not].

More than anything, I know what it feels like to be an entrepreneur and a leader. I other words, I know what it’s like to be you.
