Tribute to Mike Baumgardner
37 Years of Dedication and Leadership
We salute Mike Baumgardner for his countless contributions to McCoy & McCoy Laboratories, Inc. (MMLI) over the last 4 decades. Mike started in the coal lab and excelled at every position until reaching the President role several years ago. His ability to connect with team members and build long term relationships with clients propelled MMLI to one of the top environmental laboratories in the region. Under Mike's leadership, MMLI was named by the Maxwell Report in 2017 as one of the "Top 25 Environmental Laboratories in the United States."
Mike always stepped up in times of need and led by example. Anytime there was a project that required immediate attention, he was there. He also had the uncanny ability to make difficult decisions that always had the best interest for MMLI. Mike is a great leader as evidenced by his many accomplishments over the years. What makes him an exceptional leader is the fact that he set his team up to succeed upon his retirement. The team at MMLI is extremely confident in where we are going. This confidence comes from Mike and how he positioned the company moving forward.
Mike, thank you for your commitment to the business and the McCoy family over the last 37 years. Your leadership will be missed, but we know you will have the same success and happiness in retirement that you experienced here. Best of luck to you and your family. To quote Mike's favorite line, "at any rate" it's been a fun ride!
