Mike Braun, dad to Lucy, Emma, Evelyn and Eleanor Grace, and Ellie’s husband, has worked in the exterior remodeling industry for more than twenty years. He started his first company, 123 Exteriors, Inc. at the age of twenty four. Mike believed he could change the negative perception of exterior contractors by focusing his business on the concept of honesty, integrity and hard work. After doing just that and growing his business for more than a decade, he sold 123 Exteriors, Inc. in 2018.
Mike is the embodiment of “never give up” believing strongly that his every day actions can bring about transformative change. This belief has fueled his entrepreneurial spirit, causing him to launch, develop and expand several businesses related to the construction industry. Currently, Mike is the president of Elite Construction Solutions, a national exterior restoration company. By leveraging his expertise and leadership, Mike is making a significant impact on the construction industry.
In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, Mike believes in the importance of giving back to his community. To that end, he has volunteered for many organizations including serving on the Board of North Side Community School, an elementary school in north St. Louis. Additionally, through his businesses, he has provided annual scholarships to area high school students, enabling them to pursue education at the high school of their choice.
In his free time, Mike likes to go to his farm where he enjoys “farm work,” swimming, fishing, and spending time with his wife and kids.
