Michael Siciliano, Co-Founder
Michael is a 25-year veteran in sales and business development, his career having been largely focused on electronics and power technologies, both B2C and B2B. From his degree in Applied Science (Electronics) to his executive level experience, Michael’s career has been marked by significant accomplishments, including over $180M in direct sales and involvement in over $3B in early-, mid-, and late-stage project development. Among these sales were the largest solar power system in the history of Texas (Tarrant Regional water District) and the second largest in the entire USA (Panda Power Funds/Consolidated Edison, Pilesgrove, NJ).
In 2009, after 12 years living in hail-prone North Texas, Michael began to investigate methods by which items could be protected from hail damage. After designing and building several prototypes and identifying the best materials and technology principals, he filed his first provisional patent for a device in May 2010.
Then, further improvements warranted yet another provisional patent application. Shortly thereafter, Michael reached out to HailReporter.com because of his vision for how an early warning and hail detection system should be an essential companion service to the device, providing a true end-to-end solution and an ideal customer experience. In 2012, Michael filed a Utility Patent for The Hail Protector System. In March, 2015, the Utility Patented was published by the USPTO (US 8,985,672).
