Mike and Melanie met in the mid 80's. Melanie moved to Pine Island in 1979, went to Cape Coral high school, and graduated in 1983. She worked at Winn Dixie all throughout high school. They were married in 1987 and have three children, Michael, Brandon, and Elizabeth. They also have 3 grandchildren. Mike was a Pine Island firefighter and worked with his father, Gene, here at Bakers when he was off duty. He became the co-owner of Bakers in 2001 when his father retired. He is currently the primary business owner. His wife, Melanie, works as the Office Manager and handles the daily business operations.
Michael is the grandson of Gene, the originator of Bakers. He started doing Air Conditioning with Gene at 13 years old. He is now a licensed contractor in the state of Florida for HVAC. He obtained his Associates degree from Edison State College. Michael is married to Morgan and they have 2 beautiful children, McKenna and Michael. Morgan is working in the office off and on and will be filling in and stepping into Melanie's roll as they start enjoying the years of service more. Michael and Morgan are excited for the future of Bakers and look forward to serving our customers for years to come.
Sanchez has been with Bakers for a lot of years (we lost count) and can do it all! His primary responsibilities are installations, duct work, and major repairs. He is considered to be a part of the Bakers family, along with his wife and children.
Joe K. born and raised in Lee county. Been in the industry since 2013, started out doing Maintenance/Service but now has flourished into our Service Manager. He is a certified Mitsubishi comfort pro and has been dealing with the Rheem product since starting and now has the advanced Daikin and Goodman training to handle most things thrown at us. Happily engaged and has a happy little family and plans grow it with Bakers. Remi is his daughter and she is full of spunk and Joe's pride and joy. If you're into reptiles or HVAC Joe is the man.
Trey was born and raised in Lee county and loves to fish! We are happy to have him as part of the team and he can just about do it all now. You might see Trey to replace a major part, install a new system, maintain your current one, or fishing on your neighbors dock after work (with permission).
Josh enjoys fishing and the outdoors. He is our primary Maintenance/Service tech and is growing into a great tech. Josh like most of our seasoned techs can do most anything! He might be out to do your maintenance, replace a part, or service your "broken" system.
Charles is a welcome addition and fits in well. We are working to develop him into a super tech and he is well on the way to being that. Although young in the industry his knowledge and experience are growing exponentially. He is a Junior tech so may second guess or call a supervisor but he is learning and growing as he encounters each new situation. He is extremely thorough and our lead Maintenance tech because of his attention to detail.
