Michael Tapick

Chairman and CEO

Executive Bio

Martin Foods is the only place Mike Tapick has worked in his 67 years. Mike has been instrumental in leading change and driving growth for MPF, during his thirty plus years as CEO.


Mike was raised as the only child of MPF co-founder Melvin Tapick and his wife, Helen. Mike recalls that in his childhood home, there really was no dividing line between "family" and "business." Indeed, those two worlds were deeply intertwined, as his father managed the family poultry business six days a week, while his mother kept the company books from an office in their home. From his first job at 10 years old delivering eggs to “minding the shop” in his late teens, Mike grew up quickly in that family business environment.

After graduating from the University of Texas McCombs School of Business with a BBA in 1972, Mike and his new bride, Betty, moved home to Houston and Mike went into the business full-time. As he recalls, he never wanted to do anything else.

With a combination of strategic competitor acquisitions, regional expansions, and most notably, the opening of a red meat plant, Michael grew the company to become the largest independent Center of the Plate and Specialty Foods purveyor in the Southwest.
