Michael Sherrill graduated from Ohio State with a BA in Mathematics and earned a Masters of Industrial Engineering from Cleveland State. With a drive to control his own destiny and create something special, Simplified Facilities Group was established in 2002, as a Facility Management and Maintenance Consulting firm. While our roots are in manufacturing, early on a local bank with multiple locations gave us an opportunity to focus on commercial properties with facility management needs. Our growth has primarily been in commercial facilities such as banks, schools, libraries and office buildings.
Prior to starting the company, Mr. Sherrill was employed by Elyria Manufacturing Corp as the Industrial Engineering Manager with total Facility Management and Maintenance responsibilities.
Our drive to Do What It Takes and to Make The Work a reflection of who we are has given us 17 straight years of growth from a one-man show to sixteen employees strong!
