Mike Hillstrom – Treasurer, Village Stage Productions Board of Directors
Michael is originally from the Bay Area, where he developed his passion. He has spent the last 25 years in the wine business, and was instrumental in the growth of the retailer BevMo!, as one of its first hires.
After 21 years with BevMo! as a mentor and district manager, Michael and his family decided to focus on their #1 priority— their two boys. He is a “work-at-home” dad that is very active in their daily development and growth.
Over the last three and a half years Michael has continued to be a mentor in business as the treasurer and a chairperson of the Foulks Ranch PTO. Additionally, he has become a minority partner in the winery Bailarin Cellars, leveraging his years of knowledge of the wine business with his passion for the product.
The change in lifestyle has been very rewarding, allowing for Michael to take a very active role in being there for his children in the moment, giving extensive amounts of time volunteering at Foulks Ranch Elementary School, acting as coach for every sport that his children are involved in, and now, as Village Stage Productions’ Treasurer.
While theater is a new and unfamiliar business for Michael, business is still business! He is very excited to be working and helping with a production that requires passion from its participants.
