Mike Fowler was born in Geneva, IL and grew up in nearby West Chicago. In his early teens, his parent’s work obligations and his own work opportunities moved him to several states, but he eventually landed back in the Chicagoland area. He and his wife, Erin, have lived in Elgin since 1995 and it is where they raised their only daughter, Alex.
Mike’s entire adult career has been in the tire and wheel industry. In April 2022, he will celebrate 35 years with the US largest independent tire dealer, Discount Tire Company. Mike likes to spend his personal time running, playing golf and volunteering with his family. Mike and Erin travel frequently to Marco Island, Florida with the hope of retiring there in the near future.
