Meet Mike Bush!
Hey All! My name is Mike Bush and I’m new to the MLL family! It’s my turn to write a blog post and it happens to be on a topic I know pretty well…me! So, if you hear me answer the phone, now you’ll know a little bit about me too.
I’m 29 years old and grew up in Jackson, Michigan. I had a few jobs while growing up, including my first one as a 12-foot-tall inflatable cell phone for a local Verizon Wireless dealer. After a couple years of doing that, I decided to take a job a Wendy’s that my friend recommended me for. So, being that I could work all my shifts with a friend, I definitely took it. Then the year 2011 hit, and I graduated from Lumen Christi High School, moved to only working summers at Wendy’s, and headed off on a new adventure at Central Michigan University (CMU).
While at CMU, I decided to major in Information Systems, with a concentration in Enterprise Resource Planning, Marketing, and Logistics management. It was a lot, and took me a full 5 years to finish, but I did it. I made some amazing friends and went to a ton of football games too. Between going to football games, hanging out with friends, and studying, I also found plenty of time to do something else I love…which is playing video games and reading.
During college, I also managed to fit some clubs in, an internship at Auto-Owners, and even a semester abroad at the University of Limerick in Limerick, Ireland. I had a lot of great times and experiences in college, but once that was done, I took a job at Steelcase in Grand Rapids. I worked there a few years and then took another opportunity at Haworth in Holland, Michigan. It was a couple of years into this job that Lisa and Will reached out to me about working with their technology and marketing for MLL. After a bit of thinking and realizing that this was a great opportunity and fit, I took the job and started in August.
A few other quick things about me is that I’m a big sports fan. I love football, college football mostly, but I’ll watch whatever football I can. I love watching Notre Dame and CMU football the most. I also am a big hockey fan, but surprisingly, my team isn’t the Red Wings. I’m a big time Anaheim Ducks fan. What can I say, the Mighty Ducks movies pulled me in from a young age. Lastly, I do like baseball too. I’ll admit though, I know the least about this sport out of all of them I watch, but I do love watching Tigers baseball. They have been a bit painful to watch at times though, but they’re getting better!
Well, there’s a little bit about me, now I’m a little more than a voice on the phone hopefully. I’m excited to help MLL have an exciting future and I’m most excited to help everyone that calls us for all their insurance needs! In my short time here so far, I’ve already learned a lot from a great bunch of people, and I can’t wait to learn more and grow in this industry. So, when you call and hear the name Mike on the other end of the line, that’s me and I can’t wait to help you out!
