Michelle Solomon – President / Founder VTD

Small businesses seem to run on Michelle’s side of the family. Both sets of grandparents and her parents owned their own businesses, and Michelle has carried on with that tradition. After having moved to Oak Ridge in 1980 and working as an accountant at the government facilities in Oak Ridge for 6 years, Michelle formed Vacuum Technology Distribution, Inc. (VTD), a small, woman-owned distribution business to service government and corporate accounts.

With degrees in Education and Accounting and her knowledge of small business operations, Michelle has grown the company by providing the utmost in customer service and products at reasonable prices. Both commercial and government accounts find the same prompt, high-quality service that VTD provides to all its customers.

From the beginning Michelle has been instrumental to the success of both VTI and VTD by providing financial, accounting, and human relations expertise to both companies. Michelle balances her time between career and family and is involved in various community organizations.
