Leadership Team

As solid as our name.

Solid Steel is home to some of the most expert building professionals you will find anywhere.

We love what we do and we love the people we work with. We’re a close-knit group who have been collaborating for years, bringing consistency and efficiency to every project. But there’s more to each of us than that – we also have lives outside the office and away from the job site. Find out more about our leadership below.

Michael A. Masula

As C.E.O. at Solid Steel, Michael works hard to make certain that SSB over-delivers on customer expectations. His multiple responsibilities include managing Sales and Construction, as well as overseeing building projects and scheduling timelines. Additionally, Michael has a knack for implementing technologies that drive the back office at SSB, and he serves as the resident Building Design Guru.

Michael has over 20 years experience in IT and the Construction/Metal Building industry. He began his career in technology at a very young age and became a successful Sales Engineer during a time when the market began to change every day. Taking his skillset to the Steel Building industry, he saw that there were gaps in both products and services being offered by other companies. Michael set out to change that, and at Solid Steel Buildings, he prides himself on providing solutions, quickly responding to any project issues that may arise and getting things done for his customers (the right way).

In addition to being a go-getter, Michael is a true family man. Outside the office Michael enjoys spending time with his daughter, golfing, as well as grilling, and smoking food on his Big Green Egg.
