Hi! I’m Mike Zaura, and I am a Senior Energy Advisor here at Nania Energy Advisors. I’m coming up on almost five years in the energy industry and with the Nania family.
My background is in manufacturing. I’ve been in sales and business development for quite a while, but my manufacturing background fuels my passion for helping those clients reduce their costs. I also work with hospitality, restaurants, and food distribution clients, and we recently helped some park districts and property management companies as well.
One of my focuses is in green energy. There’s been a lot of discussion lately in how to “go green,” and I’m always willing to engage in those conversations.
When I’m not having energy conversations and talking with people about reducing their costs, our family keeps us quite busy. My beautiful wife Jamie and I have a daughter who just turned eight in May, and we also have triplet boys who will turn six in a couple weeks. So as you can imagine, we have our hands full.
I grew up in the Chicago area. I went to Loyola University of Chicago, and I grew up going to both Sox and Cubs games, although I gravitate toward the Sox a little more now. I’m a huge Bears fan, Blackhawks obviously, and the Bulls as well. So I’m a Chicago guy, & I’ve been around the area for a long time.
When the kids aren’t keeping us busy, I like to be outdoors quite a bit, and I listen to a lot of different music. One of the outdoors activities I’m quite passionate about is bocce ball. I’ve been engaging in a few bocce ball tournaments each year, and we actually have one coming up here pretty soon.
That’s just about everything about me! I’d love to engage in a conversation. If you’d like to learn a little more, talk a little bit about energy or anything else, I’m open to conversation. My contact information is below, so feel free to email or give me a call.
Thank you so much for watching, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
