Technology alone doesn’t ensure effective and efficient compliance testing; it is the relationships and the trust forged between ACS and valued customers that delivers outstanding, expedient, results. Co-founder and CEO Michael Proffitt believes that these partnerships enable his company to accomplish the goals and objectives of each customer – and help them achieve success in their competitive marketplace.
In 1987, while working towards his degree from the University of Georgia, Michael scored a position with Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc., one of the world’s most prestigious and innovative engineering and electronics companies. There, he progressed from Marketing Analyst to Sales Engineer and finally to National Account Manager – and found time to complete an MBA in Finance from Georgia State University.
In 2001, with over 14 years of manufacturing industry experience, Michael founded ACS with his brother, Scott. Their goal was, and is, to deliver superior client service in the testing and certification industry through practical experience and a culture that focuses on customer relationships.
Since its founding, ACS has, with the help of dedicated employees, grown into a company that meets this objective and of which Michael is proud to be a part. As CEO, Michael is responsible for overseeing the general operations of ACS, as well as all financial and accounting activities.
Michael is a father of a daughter and two sons. When he’s not helping customers overcome regulatory and compliance hurtles, he’s helping his kids surmount Eagle Scout challenges. In addition to scouting, Michael enjoys sailing, camping, and catching a college football game whenever he can.
