Mike Baker

Contractor/Distributor Sales–South Bay/East Bay

Mike Baker is originally from Oklahoma City, but moved to the Peninsula in the ‘80s. He left to attend the University of Oregon and graduated with a BS in Psychology. He returned to the Peninsula, needed a job to start paying down his college loans and took a position as a driver at San Carlos’ Independent Electric Supply. This was the beginning of his career in the electrical industry. IES is part of the privately held $21B Sonepar organization, based in France, and this company provided a lot of opportunities for Mike. Over more than 22 years, he worked in sales, marketing, management and electrical contracting. He joined the 16500 Sales team in 2017 to work with some of the company’s large strategic accounts.

Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids, and loves to fish and play golf. Mike still looks forward to the fall when he roots for the Ducks and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Growing up in OKC in the ‘70s, most folks were Dallas Cowboy fans, but the Terry Bradshaw-Lynn Swan era of the Steelers earned his lifelong loyalty. He’s also a Warriors and
Giants fan, and no game day is complete without a batch of his mean margaritas!
