Cindy and Mike Hartman decided after working for decades in the corporate world that it was finally time to pursue a life-long dream of business ownership. Seeking an opportunity to fulfill their passion to help others, the couple discovered the home inventory industry.
During their research, they had many conversations with homeowners and business owners who had to file insurance claims without the help of a prepared list of contents. They also met executors of estates who struggled to provide the inventory required by the State. Adding that new-found knowledge to their own experience of not having an inventory after a burglary, the couple established Hartman Inventory in 2004.
Prior to becoming entrepreneurs, their corporate backgrounds enabled them to create a successful asset inventory business. Cindy’s experience includes human resources, training, marketing, education, finance, and association management. Mike’s professional roles included sales, operations, and various levels of management, including General Manager for a multi-million dollar facility. They endured buy-outs, downsizings, and mergers over the years, which encouraged them to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit. After many years of trial and error growing Hartman Inventory, refining their processes, and honing their skills, they realized the opportunity to help others could expand past direct inventory clients. Thus, they founded Nationwide Inventory Professionals.
