About this episode’s guests

Mike Giaccone, CEO at Assemblers Inc.
In 1985, long before he was the President and CEO of Assemblers, Mike Giaccone was hired by The Home Depot.

At the age of 23, he quickly became one of the youngest store managers in its history. With experience and drive, he mastered customer service, sales, merchandising and management skills as he climbed the corporate ladder.

After ten years with The Home Depot and two years with Lowe’s Home Improvement, Giaccone realized that the demand for assembled merchandise was growing. He observed that with assembled displays, products like grills, mowers, and patio furniture sold more quickly than their non-assembled counterparts.

Assembly service companies were already in place, but they simply did not meet the demand of the stores Giaccone managed. So he created Assemblers, Inc.
