Name: Mike Benkert

Company: Universal Maintenance, Inc.

Mike started at Universal Maintenance in the early nineties as a Sales and Operations Manager before he went onto Peninsula Bible Church to serve as their Administrative Manager, College Pastor and then finally, their Planning Team Leader & Governing Board Member.

While at Peninsula Bible Church, he oversaw a number of important projects, the most notable of which was the construction of a major church building. The project involved working with contractors, city officials, and members of the congregation, as well as juggling multiple complex issues.

In addition, Mike oversaw a number of office personnel and was instrumental in formulating and implementing many of the church's financial policies. He returned to Universal Maintenance in 2012 as a Business Development Professional, expanding their service presence and market visibility with high profile retail and commercial/R&D properties and property management firms throughout the Bay Area, Sacramento, Central Valley and Southern California.

Mike then became their President/CEO in 2013. Mike has a degree in electrical engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

“Serving as an SVO Board Member is important to me because The SVO is helping business leaders connect with and learn from one another, and also doing important work representing our community and business interests to both local and state government. These things make us all stronger here in Silicon Valley, and I want to lend a hand!”
