Our Leadership Team

We recognize that our team makes the work happen and works hard to make it all seem simple

Michael Mills

President

Greg Schow and Michael Mills founded Aspen Mountain Partners in 2004 to partner with and purchase companies that share the values of teamwork, growth, and quality. Aspen Mountain Partners started humbly, acquiring 4 vending machines in dormitories at a private university in Idaho. Seventeen years and 15 acquisitions later, Greg and Michael were introduced to an organization filled with passionate employees that wanted to grow, develop, and produce world-class art; Willet Hauser. It has been a fantastic match!

Michael lives with his wife Rochelle and their three (soon to be four) daughters in Richmond, VA. When not working, Michael likes to explore singletrack paths on his mountain bike, catch anything that will bite on a fly rod, and jump on a trampoline, watch swim meets, and coach soccer games with his family. Michael played soccer and studied economics and sociology at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts before attending graduate school in business at the University of Virginia’s Darden School.

I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona and never left.

Since day one I was welcomed into a second family and got to enjoy working every day with people that may have different passions but have the same end goal and that’s to continue to help preserve the stained glass history around the world. Truly excited to watch everyone and the company itself grow!

John Phillips

Ambassador

As an entrepreneur with a long history focused in the stained glass and construction businesses, John Phillips Jr. has the unique understanding of how art and construction meet through the preservation, restoration, and design of historic windows.

John became acquainted with the world of stained glass as a young boy. He would accompany his father John Phillips, Sr., who was employed as Hauser Art Glass’ east coast studio consultant, on visits to churches. During this time he learned the many facets of the stained glass field, from art to business.

John eventually went on to work for his father, and later consulted for other studios before performing contract work for Willet Hauser.

In 1997, he and his wife Mary started their own stained glass studio, Associated Crafts, which quickly grew to become one of the largest and most respected restoration studios in the nation.

His relationship with Willet Hauser came full circle when he was given the opportunity to purchase the business in 2013 after Jim and Mike Hauser decided to pursue retirement. The Hauser’s, having known John since he was 8 years old, mentored and taught him over the years and witnessed him grow within the industry. They realized that he had the knowledge, integrity, and desire to carry on the tradition of their iconic American stained glass studio. With the acquisition complete in 2014, John Phillips, armed with passion and a talent for team building, led the way for a re-awakening of the studio, a renaissance of talent, spirit, and dedication to the craft, necessary for posterity.

Mary Phillips

Ambassador

During Mary’s time at Murray State she met her future husband, John D Phillips. They were married in Pennsylvania and lived there a year before their son JW was born. They then moved to Iowa a few years later where Shelby was born. In 1996 the family moved to Arizona where Mary worked for America West Airlines starting in the reservation department, eventually advancing to management as a supervisor for many departments. Mary finally settled in the emergency planning and response department.

After recognizing the growth of the family stained glass business Mary decided to leave the aviation business to help build Associated Crafts® & Willet Hauser as co-CEO.
