Mark Symonds

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
We have done training and development in leadership, communication skills and strategic planning with the core team here.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Plex Systems sprang from an automotive supplier in Oxford.

Where did you find your first employee?
The first employees were part of the automotive supplier. Plex Systems spun-off from that company.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
We have a strong co-op program with Kettering University. At any time we have up to six students on board. Many go on to become full-time employees.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We used a private lender called HV Capital in 2008. HV is a niche lender that understood our business and provided us with the working capital we needed to grow.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Michigan has a great wealth of talent and a very strong work ethic.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
People from outside the Midwest don't know what a great place Michigan is. I would like to see awareness raised about our state.
