Mike Begin, President and CEO

Spartan culture is cited often as a substantial advantage by customers, companies we represent, and even competitors. From the company's inception in 1963, the culture was built on a foundation of employee ownership and serving the customer with the highest degree of responsiveness, knowledge and commitment in the industry. 

Spartan is 100% employee owned. Every Spartan who works for the company has the opportunity to invest their own money in their company, and do so with a keen interest in what is important for the customer, themselves and for the business to succeed. 

Our culture is also about empowered customer service. A Spartan can do what it takes to solve a customer problem, address a need, or respond to an issue - without the need to go to a higher level of authority. They might seek consultation, maybe ask other Spartans for help, but they can champion what they think is best for the customer. Powerful. 

This type of culture also drives a tremendous amount of entrepreneurship and innovation. Teamwork and mutual respect is high. Ask a newer Spartan what they like the most or find unique about working at Spartan and they will very often cite the great people. No matter who they speak with, all Spartans are willing to help fellow Spartans learn, address an issue or offer other support. This makes the work environment that much more high energy and fun. Visitors to Spartan ask why everyone is so happy. It's the culture.
