Grid Connect-5028-3Mike Justice is the Founder and President of Grid Connect. Before the Grid Connect, Mike founded Synergetic Micro Systems, which was later acquired by Lantronix in 2001. After working on the Lantronix team for a couple of years, Mike decided it was time to form another company. Grid Connect was founded in 2003 and has been selling and creating great networking products and technologies since.

Other than Mike's everyday duties to keep Grid Connect running smoothly, he spends a lot of time in different parts of the company helping to create a better and more efficient place to work. If Mike is not in his office, you can find him in an engineering meeting, helping make marketing decisions, or even vacuuming up the warehouse! Mike's favorite part of Grid Connect is being able to watch his employees grow and have fun. "As a family business, it is important to have great people that treat Grid Connect like part of their family."

Although you can find Mike dominating the ping-pong table almost daily at Grid Connect, one of his favorite hobbies outside of work is playing ping-pong too.
