MEET THE FOUNDERS & OWNERS
Michael grew up in a family that valued hard work and honesty, helping in his father’s mulch business and commercial rental properties. He graduated from Clemson University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Financial Management. Not wanting to leave his beloved South Carolina for out-of-state job offers, Michael and his former college roommate, Tyler, decided to create their own opportunity right where they were.
They used their savings to purchase some used equipment and started grading for new homes, doing driveways, planting grass, and anything else to make a dollar. Their hard work paid off and more projects started rolling in. They expanded into commercial and industrial work and grew to where they could reinvest in top equipment and site-work software.
“Growing up, it was always amazing to see new job sites with my dad. We would go so I could see the contractors moving dirt. I never could have imagined at the time that I would one day own a company doing the very thing I enjoyed watching as a kid. I can truly say I enjoy what I do and look forward to going to work.”
Born and raised in upstate South Carolina, Tyler loves working in such a beautiful area. After graduating from Clemson University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Packaging Science, Tyler partnered with his former college roommate to form Bishop Mays, Inc. Tyler appreciates all aspects of his career from managerial oversight in the field to completing the necessary office work.
Tyler’s highest objective is to ensure each of his clients expectations are not just met but exceeded in every aspect of the job. He knows that without the ongoing support of the BMI field and office staff the business would not be the successful company it is today.
"Outside of work, you will find me enjoying time with my wife Marsha and our two children. I'm an active member of Memorial United Methodist Church in Greer, SC. My favorite season is summer as I love to spend days on the lake with friends and family."
