President and Chief Executive Officer

Stepping into a leadership role at an established global company with a strong legacy is a big challenge. Mike’s success in doing so is a testament to both his own engaging and empowering leadership style, and to the unique culture of Suddath®, where hard work, teamwork and an attitude of customer service are all it takes to feel a part of the family. Mike makes sure the mission, values and attributes of our company are carried out from the leadership level all the way through to day-to-day operations. Believing that his role is as much brand ambassador as business leader, he also keeps us true to our promises, while making sure the company stays strong and grows across its diverse but unified business units.

With nearly 30 years of finance, accounting and operations experience, Mike has held executive leadership positions in a variety of areas including operations management, corporate development and strategy, fleet and asset management, and corporate planning and international finance.

Before joining Suddath as Chief Operating Officer in 2012, Mike served as Chief Financial Officer at iGPS, spent 17 years at Ryder System, Inc., and also held positions at Procter & Gamble and Arthur Andersen.

Mike holds an MBA from Cornell University and a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Albright College. In his occasional spare time, Mike spends time with family and is a self-described sports fanatic.


Kevin Gannon

Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Kevin will tell you he would’ve become an engineer if he hadn’t discovered accounting. Lucky for us, his love of finance won out. He is just as comfortable leading and engaging with teams as he is running the numbers, a balance that fits our organization perfectly. It’s how we’ve stayed customer-focused while also building a strong business.

Kevin leads administrative, financial and risk management operations that guide financial decisions made across our company. Since joining Suddath in 2002, he has served in a variety of roles including Vice President/Controller, Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of Operations.

Before he joined Suddath, Kevin was a senior manager with Deloitte & Touche, LLP where he provided tax, auditing, transaction and consulting services to his clients.

Kevin is a Certified Public Accountant licensed in Florida, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accounting from the University of Florida Fisher School of Accounting. This left-brained thinker is also a left-handed first baseman. If brain theories hold any truth, this means he may be one of the most balanced people you’ll meet. Along with his love of softball, Kevin enjoys golf, sunshine, the water and all Florida Gator sports.
