Pro­fes­sion­al­ly speak­ing, Mike Gustafson is an expe­ri­enced busi­ness­man who has spear­head­ed Search Discovery’s growth over the past 3+ years. But when he’s not in the office, Mike is a fam­i­ly man, trav­eller, and aspir­ing quail hunter. Read on to learn more about what Mike val­ues most in life.

Where are you from?

I was born in Erie, PA, but have lived in Cleve­land and Atlanta for a large part of my life.

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to spend time with my wife and four kids, read, golf and coach bas­ket­ball. I also recent­ly start­ed quail hunting.

What is the most mem­o­rable trip you’ve been on?

I have been for­tu­nate to go on quite a few mem­o­rable trips. The most recent one was to Mum­bai and Del­hi, India for a good friend’s wedding.

What’s your favorite spot in Atlanta (or Geor­gia in general)?

Right now, I love going to the North Geor­gia moun­tains. It is beautiful.

What’s your proud­est moment?

This is a very dif­fi­cult ques­tion to answer. I am grate­ful to have many. Most of them come when I see my kids fight through a chal­lenge, a prob­lem or a set­back and fig­ure out how to solve the prob­lem or get back up and try some­thing again.

Do you have any pets?

I have a 1 year old Ger­man Short­haired Point­er named Ender. He is full of ener­gy and is so far a great fam­i­ly dog and decent hunt­ing companion.

What’s your favorite part about work­ing at Search Discovery?

I love hav­ing the chance every­day to work with peo­ple who share a com­mon set of val­ues and are tru­ly com­mit­ted to help­ing each oth­er achieve their best. It is very grat­i­fy­ing to be able to serve on a team and work hard to cre­ate an envi­ron­ment and a cul­ture where incred­i­ble work is being done to make a dif­fer­ence for our clients’ businesses.
