About the Sturgeon Team


As the owner and President of Pools by Sturgeon/Sturgeon Stone and Landscape, Mike is very familiar with the Bloomington, IN, area, attending high school at Bloomington North and as a long-time resident.  Following his graduation, Mike served in the U.S. Army receiving specialized education and training as an x-ray technician.  He worked at Bloomington Hospital in this capacity for 13 years, as well as, landscaping/excavating jobs with the ultimate goal of starting his own business which he did in 1998.  As a San Juan Pools installer, Mike is able to provide well-rounded and well-grounded insight into the overall scope of each project.  He is involved in all stages of the process … design, project planning, and build/install.


Mike’s wife, Angela, formerly of Franklin, IN, is the VP of Marketing and Business Manager taking care of the day-to-day administrative and operational responsibilities. With a strong background in executive administration and customer service, Angela is behind-the-scenes (and sometimes right in the middle of things!) helping to coordinate schedules, materials delivery, and communication efforts. She shares in Mike’s goal to fully understand each clients’ practical needs, as well as, wants and desires when creating backyard retreats.


Murray met Mike several years ago during his own home improvement project which included a natural stone wall around the perimeter of his yard, pavers, artificial turf installation, and the rehab of a totem pole.  Murray was impressed with Mike’s diverse range of skills and quality outcome that he has since taken on the role of Business Partner and Financial Advisor.  As the VP of Finance, Murray insures the long-term viability of Pools by Sturgeon/Sturgeon Stone and Landscape, sharing his knowledge as a CPA and years of experience at the corporate helm of major operations on Wall Street and Coca-Cola.


Sharing in the commitment to continually improve and enhance all aspects of pool installs and outdoor living builds, Dave (aka “Hoody”) works with our employees to insure quality in a timely manner.  Hoody is a Mason by trade with experience in all aspects of construction.  Although rare, if Mike isn’t readily available onsite, daily you will find Hoody hands-on – always willing to take the time to talk with our clients, answer questions, and address concerns.
