The Art in Artisan.
On April 1st 2018 Michael Kearns, vice president of construction and field superintendent, retired from the Artisan Tile & Marble family.

Way back in 1971, who would have thought that Michael's life would change so dramatically when Arnold Hess & John Sekora stopped to give a lift to rain-soaked hitchhiker in a torrential rainstorm? The next day Michael's life as an artisan began and as they say - the rest is history.
Many things have happened since that fateful day 47 years ago. Michael has logged in over 1 million miles traveling on behalf of Artisan. In 1974, he married his beautiful wife Patti. Blessed with two wonderful children, Beth and Matthew, he also has two fabulous grandchildren - Lowen and Vanessa.

Throughout his almost 50 year career with Artisan Tile, Michael has led the outside forces. Scheduling manpower and materials, making initial site inspections and acting as the overall designated "Mike" of all trades.

Michael has been a valuable member of the ATM team and the quiet power behind countless successes. He has been instrumental in Artisan's numerous awards and recognitions of excellence.

The Sekora family and the Artisan family will always be grateful for Michael's years of dedication and integrity. He will be greatly missed and will always be remembered as one of the key reasons for our many achievements and longevity.

Michael intends to spend his retirement enjoying his family and, of course, golfing as much as possible. As he says, my hobby (no, make that my passion) is golf and I enjoy playing whenever I can. You may want to know (in case you are looking for a fourth) that I am Artisan's 'house' golf pro.

Michael (will not be) here…..but always be an Artisan

Congratulations Mike!

The Art in Artisan.
In one of the many praises we have received in the past year for exceptional work, a recent project completed at Seton Hall University garnered the following:
As we are wrapping up the project, I wanted to compliment you and your team on the really nice work. The craftsmanship was outstanding and received numerous compliments from The University's team. I had the opportunity to meet your foreman Tom (Thomas Arthur, Jr.) and some of his team. They put tremendous pride into their work. Tom was particularly proud of the work involving the pirate head just inside the main entrance.

Thank you and we all look forward to working together in the future.
