Meet The Face Behind Baila Floors

By Baila Floors |


I’m Michael Pinnock, proud owner of Baila Floors.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

After spending twenty-eight years in the tech business, I needed a change of pace from all the travel. While most people don’t believe it, the truth is, going to beautiful places all the time also gets tiring! My need for a change in pace saw me looking for a small community-based business where I could focus more on my creative side.

I have always enjoyed working on projects around my home and I had installed my own tile and hardwood flooring while I was still pursuing a tech career. I began looking at the options I had and figured that I genuinely enjoy the creative process and taking up a career in flooring would offer me the opportunity to immerse myself in creativity.

I took the leap in 2009 in the midst of one of the largest recession in modern history. Ever sector was suffering in 2008 and 2009, but I was determined to push through and believed that I could make a difference. As the recession eased, and years passed, I can confidently say that we have come a long way since the time we began.

Although we went through a name change three years ago, our core values of being firm believers in good work ethics, and acknowledging that our word is our bond has remained unchanged. I also believe that our ‘work hard, play harder’ outlook has helped us and held us in high stead.

My need for creativity played a vital role in taking up this line of work, and I’m happy to say that seeing a space transform in a few hours or days continues to provide the same thrill and joy as it did in 2009. There’s no better feeling than working with a client to bring their ideas to life.

Apart from the excitement of working with clients, being a business owner has offered me additional benefits. One of these rewards is that I have employees with families and I understand that the work we do provides them with a source of income and a livelihood. That was driven home recently with the birth of Baila Floors’ first baby. I took great pride in knowing that one of our team members was starting a family and Baila Floors played a small part in the family’s success story.

While we played a small part in one family’s success story, the excellent Baila Floors’ team, amazing vendors, installers, and clients we have worked with over the years, have played a significant role in our success. I hope to continue this growth story and see the business transform in ways that I never imagined.

Apart from flooring and creative work, I’m an avid sports enthusiast and share my time away from the office between biking and golfing throughout the Bay Area.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
