Mike Lencioni-CEO

Mike started in the window covering business as a teenager working with his father in 1975. After graduating high school in 1977 he went to work for JC Penney’s as a window covering installer. After leaving JC Penney he obtained his contractors license and worked as an installer for multiple companies around the bay area specializing in Shutter installation and installing large commercial projects throughout the bay area and Sacramento area.

In 1994 Mike opened his own business, MLI Shutters, out of his garage in his home. Through hard work and a reputation for honest business practices he was able to grow the company to the point where he needed a commercial space to accommodate the companies workload.

In 2013 he partnered with Gary Crannell and changed the name of the Company to Elite Shutters and Shadings to better reflect the company’s reputation and expertise. Now Elite Shutters and Shadings is one of the largest independently owned window covering companies in Northern California with its three locations in Manteca, Livermore and Elk Grove.
