Mike Shell

General Manager, North America

 

Q: Describe your role and responsibilities at Elkay Commercial Systems.
A: I lead the Commercial Systems North America division as we aim to be the first choice for clients looking for incredible service, quality, and world-class back-of-the-house products for their commercial kitchen environments. I challenge the status quo, aim to mentor, inspire, and allow my team enough room to perform their best creative work for themselves and our clients.

 

Q: What aspect of working at Elkay do you find most personally rewarding?
A: The wealth of experience within the people on my team, specifically, but also throughout Elkay. The encouragement of numerous growth opportunities personally and professionally is unique and quite remarkable, and this allows us to turn our customers creative ideas into amazing reality.

 

Q: What TV show did you recently binge-watch?
A: Black Mirror on Netflix. A disturbing sign of things to come regarding our over-reliance on technology! Especially the episode called “Metalhead”. You’ve been warned…….

 

Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Have seen it probably 25 times. French silk pie of course.
