Mark Your Space
Mike attended Lake Forest Graduate School of management from 2004-2006. While attending graduate school he got the “bug” to be a business owner and escape corporate America. Unfortunately, now wasn’t his time but he continued to learn and stretch himself professionally, while still daydreaming of one day owning his own company.
In 2008 fate delivered the opportunity Mike needed. Mass layoffs in the financial industry saw Mike leaving HSBC abruptly. The severe conditions at the time made finding a new opportunity difficult. At one point Mike decided he would have to make his own path….
A much younger Mike Sobel dreamed of owning his own business. He dreamed of creating a team environment where he and his employees loved coming into the office and working a job they both took pride in and enjoyed.
After working in corporate America for over 20 years, our owner Mike Sobel decided to quit the corporate game and finally start following his passion. He wanted to explore new opportunities and control his destiny. In 2009, he took the plunge and opened Mark Your
Space, a full service sign company.
While starting a business in the midst of the Great Recession, Mike’s perseverance and passion kept this business going and growing. Working on a team of one, he worked relentlessly to start and grow this blooming business.
After 13 years in business, we remain independently owned and operated.Under Mike’s leadership, our team and business continue to grow, and we cannot wait to see where the next project takes us!
