Greg & Lisa Place

Greg and Lisa purchased Elcom in July of 2014 from Dan & Verlie Smith. As an employee of Elcom prior to the purchase, Greg brought experience relating to communications from both a sales perspective, and as a former customer of Elcom as a user/purchaser of communication equipment. Greg has obtained experience in state and federal government while working with the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) as a liaison between the State of Michigan and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Greg also worked as a Regional Bioterrorism Coordinator through the State of Michigan, coordinating efforts between all hospital, EMS and medical related entities in the U.P. Greg received training through The CDC and US Dept. of Homeland Security on various levels, and worked to implement required measures in his assignment area. Greg also has experience in the financial field, having worked in all levels of banking for a large portion of his career. The last position held in this field, was as Assistant Vice President, Commercial Loan Officer. Greg has also worked in the sales environment, having spent a number of years working for pharma companies Upjohn and Pfizer. Most recently, Greg was honored to be selected to represent Elcom on a Wisconsin National Guard Operation BossLift, where he was flown on a Blackhawk helicopter to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin. Elcom was given a certificate of support from the Department of Defense indicating the support for the U.S National Guard and Reserve.

Lisa still works for local government, she brings significant experience to Elcom. As a Legal Secretary for both the local prosecuting attorney’s office, as well as other county court offices, she has extensive knowledge and understanding of local government operations. She has also many years working in the financial/management industry as she has held positions in banking and office management throughout her career as well as customer and quality support. Lisa also has a background in bookkeeping and provides support and input to Elcom on a daily basis.

Lisa and Greg spend their time away from work in various ways. They are very actively involved in the lives of their three children, and build most every aspect of their life around family. Although they enjoy traveling as often as they can… during the summer they can usually be found either on their boat, or on their deck behind their house relaxing and enjoying the sun. The fall and winter will normally provide the Place’s with many hunting and snowmobiling trips as time and weather allows. Greg & Lisa are focused on customer’s viewpoints, because they were customers not all that long ago. They understand the balance of providing focused customer support, while managing the aspects of running a small business in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin. Their goal, based on their own experience, is simply to provide high level support, quality products, and excellent workmanship. Their goal is to provide long-term growth for Elcom by adhering to these goals and principals, while caring for our employees and long-standing customer relationships.
