Not likely although it seems like its been awhile since he's bullied anyone that we have heard about.

After cutting the legs out of their dealer network, classic Sinyard.

Yep, when death knell is your business ethos you're always looking for your next conquest.

He had to turn inward after he was finally called out and shamed for going after too many little guys that were never going to be a threat.

He says he “clicked right away” with Sinyard, so it will still be SOB season.

Soody, that was cleaver. lol

No fan of Mike, and yes, the next guy will follow, er...is following in his footsteps. He also brings with him the experience of a big online presence in the vac industry. Hopefully Sinyard will enjoy his new role. Let's go Specialized!
