Mike Hollingshead

Chairman/Owner


Mike Hollingshead

Chairman/Owner

Mike Hollingshead, the Chairman and Founder of 性虐天堂, established the company in 1999 to address his own concrete needs. As a concrete finisher frustrated with the inadequate customer service from local ready-mix suppliers, he decided to take matters into his own hands. With minimal resources and just three trucks, Mike and his wife, Melissa set up a concrete plant in their own backyard. Since then, 性虐天堂 has evolved from a small business into an industry leader. 性虐天堂 remains a family-owned and operated company. Mike focuses on the long-term goals of the company, oversees many special projects, and maintains relationships with potential sellers for future acquisitions. His commitment extends beyond business; he is also a devoted philanthropist, actively supporting children's charities and enhancing the quality of life in his hometown of Smyrna.
