Mike Hollingshead

President/Owner


Mike Hollingshead

President/Owner

Mike is President and Founder of SRM Concrete. He started the company in 1999 to service his own concrete needs because as a concrete finisher, Mike was not receiving the customer service from the local ready-mix companies that he required for his customers. With very little money and three trucks, he built a concrete plant in his backyard and has grown Smyrna Ready Mix from a small business into an industry leader in multiple regions of the country. SRM Concrete continues as a family-owned and operated company. Mike focuses on the long-term goals of the company, oversees the acquisitions, and maintains relationships with customers, suppliers, and potential sellers for future acquisitions. Mike is an active philanthropist with a history of supporting children’s charities and improving the quality of life for residents in his hometown of Smyrna, Tenn. He and his wife, Melissa, have two sons, Jeff and Ryan.

Jeff is the CEO of SRM and manages a team of dedicated professionals. Jeff has developed strategies that place the company at a competitive advantage by implementing new practices not seen in the ready-mix industry.
