Mike and Nikole Abate
Being a Middle Tennessee gutter installer means being local and customer-focused. The Brothers That Just Do Gutters of Tennessee is owned and operated by local residents, Mike & Nikole Abate. Originally from Connecticut, Mike has called Tennessee home for over 30 years. Nikole is a Nashville native which seems to be a rarity these days.
Mike spent the last fifteen years at Cigna, a Fortune 15 company, serving as a senior HR leader on multiple business units and executive leadership teams – collectively servicing over 10,000 employees. He was consistently recognized for his leadership in talent management and operating effectiveness. He received his BS Degree in Management Information Systems from Tennessee Technological University.
Nikole also has a background in Human Resources and has most recently been a stay-at-home mom to their two children. She has been heavily involved in the local animal rescue community as well as the local Boy Scout chapter. She received her BS Degree in Psychology from Middle Tennessee State University.
After many years in corporate America, Mike had a passion to launch his own business. With extensive experience in home remodeling, he felt that home improvement services were the best opportunity to bring this passion to life. Mike has encountered many disappointing projects with contractors over the years and he knew that they could offer a better customer experience for their clients. One that is timely, courteous, value-focused, and most importantly, creates trust through honesty and integrity.
Mike learned about the franchise opportunity with The Brothers that just do Gutters and he quickly knew that there was something special about this company. Mike completed a thorough due diligence process prior to attending Discovery Day to meet the team in person. During their visit, Mike and Nikole were impressed with the leadership values, culture, and most notedly, the demonstrated success their business systems had in creating a “best in class” experience for homeowners.
This business model provides customers with a quality of service that does not currently exist in the Middle Tennessee gutter industry. Their visit verified that this was the right move for Mike, Nikole, and their family.
Mike and Nikole reside in Franklin with a menagerie of pets and are proud parents of their two boys, Evan & Garrett. They enjoy travelling and spending time outdoors.
