Hello, my name is Mike Bassett. I am the Southeast Sales Manager for Britz and Company. I am a former Animal Facility Manager. I worked as the manager at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine for 29 years and, also at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center for 4 years. I served 6 years in the Mississippi Army National Guard as a 13 FOXTROT, forward observer. I reside in Starkville, MS with my wife Becky and my two kids Hatcher and Presley. I have worked in research for over 33 years in several capacities including as cage wash technician, surgical aide, research technician, assisting in building design and management of medium to large size animal care staff. My advice for anyone starting in the animal care field is to achieve AALAS certification at all levels.
My name is Frank Herlihy, and I have lived in the New England area my entire life. I grew up in Stoneham, MA 15 minutes North of Boston, and attended Clark University in Worcester, MA receiving my BA Chemistry. I am currently residing in Southern, NH. Ericka and I are the proud parents of four children all currently living throughout New England and one granddaughter. My hobbies include reading, watching sports, and taking walks with my wife.
I have been in Life Science Sales for over 30 years selling everything from CRW’s to Sterilizers, Hydrogen peroxide Systems to NHP housing. I enjoy helping my customers find solutions to their problems. The best part about the job, as you all know, is that each day brings a new challenge, and no day is the same.
