Before bringing Core Value Co. to Lancaster PA in 2019, Robby served over a decade in the US Air Force, where he served 4 years active duty, stationed at Sheppard AFB, TX and Ramstein AB, Germany, and 6 in the Guard at Selfridge ANGB, MI. He enlisted in 2007, serving in a Civil Engineering Squadron, electrical division. He contributed to projects all over the world, in both the Middle East and humanitarian missions abroad, earning more than two dozen awards and decorations. The tools and unique experienced gained from multiple overseas deployments and leading other men prepared Robby for the challenges of leading a company and empowering those around him to model the same Core Values he gained from the military, that inspired the name of Core Value Contracting.
Prior to founding Core Value Co., he worked for the Federal Aviation Administration, as a project lead for radar and satellite technologies in SE Michigan. Prior to this, he was a commercial electrical contractor in Ann Arbor MI, and for the first 2 years after moving home from active duty, a proud IBEW lineman. Prior to joining the Air Force, he remodeled homes as a carpenter while attending college in Ann Arbor, with hopes of one day becoming a history teacher, coaching wrestling and flipping houses in the summers.
In 2005, he moved to Dexter Michigan, from Hobart Indiana, where he was raised, next door to Mike Halloran. From a young age, they day-dreamt of one day running a business together. It was after the end of his 13-year relationship and marriage in 2017, that brought him to Michigan, when Robby reevaluated his long-term dreams and invested every blessing from life into establishing Core Value Co. By becoming the exclusive dealer of Duct Armor in Pennsylvania, he took the leap of faith and moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and has since began a partnership, with Mike Halloran, as friends and Christian business partners.
Robby is a member of NADCA, Christian Business Fellowship, Lancaster Young Professionals, Lancaster Road Runners Club, PRE West Chester and a Freemason. He is a Christian and in his free time enjoys carpentry, fishing, playing guitar, the idea of fitness, and Notre Dame football.
As the contractor on record for Core Value Co, he maintains all necessary licensing and certifications, in addition to several others including OSHA, mechanical contractor, and electrical licenses.
Before moving to Lancaster, PA in 2019, Mike lived in Indianapolis, IN. He was a general contractor and worked with several realtors and investors on home renovations. He owned and managed this company for over a year before being offered the opportunity to join Core Value Co. Prior to contracting, he worked as a service plumber around the Indianapolis area. Mike’s first job in Indianapolis was for a startup logistics company. This company was his first experience working for a small business and he enjoyed and learned from the challenges associated with growing a company.
Mike attended Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, majoring in Mathematics. Mike met his wife, Kelsie, at IUPUI where they both attended. Mike and Kelsie married in 2016 and have two daughters, Annalyse and Sophia. Mike grew up in Hobart, Indiana. He attended Hobart High School and spent most of his time playing football and wrestling.
In addition to being a husband, father, and brother, Mike is a Christian and in his spare time enjoys spending time with family, working on home projects, and the Green Bay Packers.
