Employee appreciation post: Mike Stallard’s Digital Hall of Fame

Welcome to this month’s Digital Hall of Fame, where we introduce Mike Stallard, our Production Supervisor. Mike has been with the business for nearly 6 years officially, but unofficially, he was the first within the team to build our flagship Muirfield, and later Birkdale luminaires right at the very beginning of our journey, over 12 years ago.

Building lanterns at night, following his day job at SSE, installing columns, Mike’s exceptional skills and meticulous attention to detail, mean he holds the title of our most experienced assembler—although he might protest otherwise.

Often affectionately dubbed as the ‘old man’ of the company, Mike’s wealth of experience and wisdom is an invaluable asset to our team. Outside the workshop, he once roamed the open roads as a passionate motorcyclist—although, as he jests, the pace of his younger colleagues proved a tad challenging to keep up with.

Join us in learning more about Mike Stallard:

Tell me a little more about you outside of work, hobbies, loves, and what you enjoy doing in your free time.

In no particular order: wood turning, football (Mike is an avid Bristol Rover’s fan), playing darts, the occasional quiz and eating out!

What do you think is the best thing about Acrospire? What do you enjoy most about your role?
The teamwork! I love that we work as one unit. Working in a professional company where the core values aren’t just lip service is refreshing.

Who or what inspires you the most these days? Why?
My mum! At the grand old age of 84, she still gets on and ‘does’.

If there is one thing you could eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ribeye steak (medium, thank you) with chips and Chimichurri sauce – yum!

What’s your favourite film and why?
The Green Mile. It is bittersweet with fantastic actors and a brilliant script and writing.

As we celebrate Mike’s contributions to our team, we’re reminded of the diverse talents and passions that define Acrospire. Stay tuned for more insights into the individuals who make our company.
