November Staff Spotlight: Mike Sever

Mike sever

We would like to introduce our Houston Operations Manager, Mike Sever. Mike was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and worked in various construction trades there before moving to Texas. He later worked for a Crating company headquartered near the port of Houston.

Mike’s daily tasks include handling various requirements involving imports, exports, air, sea, and road freight. His favorite part about the job is “Seeing a project that has been in planning and development for many months, finally come to fruition.”

In his free time, he takes long drives with no particular destination and spends time with his adult children and five grandchildren participating in their various hobbies, sports and adventures.

Matagalpa, Nicaragua is Mike’s dream travel destination. He fell in love with the place while visiting there many years ago. Everything from the people, to the culture, to the city, makes Matagalpa “like Heaven on Earth.”

Favorite restaurants of Mike’s include Dimassi’s Mediterranean Buffet and La Casita Mexican Restaurant, “a little ‘mom n’ pop’ with the friendliest owners.”

Mike was “adopted” by Doodles, a small, ferocious dog weighing in at a proud 11 lbs, and Tundra, a cat who likes to eat and sleep.

The best career lesson he has learned is “It is not the title that makes the man, but the man that makes the title.”

Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about Mike!
