Fish Tales

Our Founder and CEO, Mike Levitt, is a housing visionary and Affordable Housing Hall of Fame Inductee well-known for creating a family of companies that over the last 40 years have led the industry in innovation and success.

But all work and no play isn't Mike's style as he's made a name for himself over the past four decades as a world-class bill fisherman who at last count holds 14 world records. He has also been a leading advocate for conservation and "catch and release" fishing through his work with the International Game Fish Association, where he has served as a Chairman.

Mike's love of fishing, and other sports (should we talk Phillies?) is shared by many of our teammates at Michaels. Even those who don't fish, appreciate that our organization believes in playing as hard as we work.
