After a career with a European Car Manufacturer responsible for all dealership activity between Fresno and Fairbanks, Mike Rhoads started the Bay Areas first exclusively mobile shredding service in 1994. Working from a converted family room, a 10 x 10 storage locker and rented parking space for his truck, the business grew quickly to 3 shredding trucks.
The addition of David has allowed Mike to step back a bit from the business to pursue not only his golf game but also an On Call Reservist position with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Here’s Mike working in a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Mobile after Hurricane Ivan.
In 2000, he brought his son David into the business. With a background in law enforcement and management experience with an Oregon based business services company, David’s transition to the shredding business was swift. He’s overseen both the growth in SureShred’s customer base as well as the acquisition of a building located in Hayward near the San Mateo Bridge.
