Clowning Around

Date: January 13, 2022

This week on the “Inspire” Podcast, we spoke with Michael Rose, Jr., Chief Marketing Officer of The Diversified Companies and new Integrity Partner.

Mike, Jr. shares how his father, founder of The Diversified Companies, had him dress up like a clown at a local fair to help promote the family business. Mike Jr. was kind enough to pass along a picture of him in costume that was featured in the local newspaper.

Clowning Around

As an adult, Mike Jr. made career plans outside the family business. He was going to become a Catholic priest and attended seminary school for three years. However, his high school sweetheart convinced him to choose a different profession and start a family instead. They got married and together have seven children – and Mike Jr. has found numerous ways to promote the family business without the use of a clown costume.

We are excited to welcome Mike Jr. and the rest of the Rose Boys to the Integrity family!
