CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Michael has extensive knowledge of the events industry and a passionate desire to creatively innovate the way events companies are operated and managed. In 2012, Michael acquired Serazuki Enterprises, DBA Abbey Party Rents San Francisco. From 2012 to 2019, Michael grew the company from twenty-eight employees to seventy full-time and fifty part-time employees. Under his leadership, revenue increased over 200%. This growth was due to Michael’s vision to bring creative solutions to the Northern California event rental market by introducing new product offerings and services to the space, including the acquisition of One True Love Vintage.
In May of 2020, during the midst of a worldwide pandemic, Michael hired forward-thinking Liz Curtis to be the CEO of his portfolio of brands, which they renamed Fulcrum Group. Home to Abbey Party Rents, Table + Teaspoon, One True Love Vintage, and a collection of exclusive wedding venues, Fulcrum Group’s business model was designed as an elevated one stop shop for all things events. Michael’s role is now Chairman of the Board for Fulcrum Group, a position that allows him to provide leadership to the group’s officers and executives.
