Mike Schwartz

President 985.801.0665

As the president and owner of ATS, Mike Schwartz's goal is to make every tradeshow a rousing success for his clients. A graduate of the University of New Orleans, Mike has dedicated himself to offering the most cutting edge technology and best customer service in the tradeshow industry since he founded ATS in 1996. His B.S. in Geology, combined with eight years of working as an Environmental Consultant, has made him a big proponent of using sustainable materials and green technologies in ATS products and services. Mike personally attends over 20 tradeshows a year, mingling with clients to find out how ATS can make their lives easier. When not traveling, you can find him at home in Louisiana enjoying the great outdoors with his wife and two boys, Jack and Pete, or on the tennis court channeling Roger Federer.

Peter Schulz

Vice President / General Manager 985.801.0535

General Manager and Vice President Pete Schulz’s favorite saying is, “you have two ears and one mouth, so use them proportionately.” Good news for ATS clients. Understanding each tradeshow is unique. Pete listens carefully, gleaning each client’s objectives to customize a package of products and services that fit their specific needs. An LSU alum, during football season, he wears both his heart and the purple and gold on his sleeve. When not traveling to catch up with clients at tradeshows across the country, he is home in Louisiana with his wife and three children. Except, of course, for Wednesday evenings, when you will find him on the basketball court perfecting his three-pointer.
