Michael Sirpilla is a co-founder and CEO of Society Brands Inc. Society Brands is headquartered in Canton, Ohio and is a tech-enabled consumer products company that acquires e-commerce native brands. Society Brands provides meaningful liquidity for the founders of each acquisition while allowing them to stay onboard with their brand. The founders also have the ability to roll equity into Society Brands parent company so the founder can enjoy a second exit down the road that will likely be bigger than the first.
Michael grew up in Canton and has been in and around retail his whole life and has extensive M&A experience throughout his career and been part of multiple business ventures where he’s primarily focused on organic growth. He founded a financial services wholesale agency with 40 direct reports and built it to a multi-million-dollar business. He also partnered in a population health management business and scaled it from $0 to $150MM in revenue within five years.
With Michael as CEO, Society Brands raised $205MM to continue their rapid consolidation in the e-commerce sector. This milestone serves as one of the largest early stage funding rounds raises in Ohio’s history. Society Brands has been featured in Forbes, Yahoo Finance, Crain's, Akron Beacon Journal, the Canton Repository and many other national and local news publications.
Michael lives in Canton with his wife and their three kids. They enjoy travel, sports and spending time with family.
