George Satula is a successful home construction entrepreneur, thought leader and Tec/Vistage Chair. George graduated from UW Milwaukee and started his career selling Koss Headphones in Michigan, followed by a short stint at Ross Labs, selling Similac baby formula.

After being married to his wife, Wendy, George returned to Wisconsin and SBI Development Company, a custom home builder, and ultimately built more than 250 custom homes.

Mike and George met each other when George became the Chair of Tec 7, where Mike’s been a member since 2006.
