TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®
General manager- Michael Sham
MICHAEL
GENERAL MANAGER
After graduating high school, Michael Sham joined the Navy where he served for six years as an aviation electronics technician. At the young age of 19, Sham was given a great deal of responsibility, sometimes giving orders to men twice his age. “It certainly prepared me to be a leader and taught me how to be ready for anything that may come up,” said Sham. “There were so many different types of personalities in the military that it made me a better people person.” Prior to joining TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® in 2013, he attended Belhaven University and earned a degree in exercise physiology. While pursuing his dream of becoming a strength and conditioning coach, Sham worked for the Jackson location starting as a mover. After working as a mover for two months, Sham took on the role of general manager at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Jackson, Miss., franchise and truly launched his career within the system. As a participant in the first-ever Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® scholarship program, he and seven other managers across the system dedicated one year of extensive training to further enhance their knowledge of the inner workings of the franchising system, and ultimately lay the foundation for them in becoming a successful franchisee. As a result, Sham was awarded $10,000 to go toward opening his own franchise. “The scholarship program taught me what it takes to get a successful new franchise off the ground. There is a lot that goes into getting an operation up and running and all the bases were covered in the program,” said Sham. “The relationships that were built during the program with Home Office and other franchisees and managers are invaluable. A lot of what I learned, I was able to implement at my current franchise.” Sham plans to open his new franchise in Horn Lake, Miss., May 2016 alongside Jackson, Miss., Franchisees Jeff Taylor and Jack Christopher. “Michael has been a successful manager and is a shining example of the hard work and development that leads to success in our system. We are blessed as Michael moves forward to ownership and the great things he will accomplish,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CFO Jeff Wesley. “I’m so thankful to have been brought on by my partners to live the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® dream,” said Sham. “I never imagined that one day I would be a small business owner.”
