Why Indian Peaks Rental?

In the early spring of 2005, Mike Leiser approached his ski-school buddy, Mike Giesie, about a business idea. It wasn’t a new business, as Leiser had been in the business since he was a 10 years old, but rather a re-birth.

It had been 5 years since Leiser had sold his tool and equipment rental store, Indian Peaks Rent-all, to Wagner Rents in Granby and Leiser was ready to open up shop again. He knew Giesie’s background in excavation, construction, semi-truck driving, as well as his experience with managing employees. Leiser thought with their combined experience, a rental store would have a great chance of being successful.

Mike Giesie – who had been contemplating business ideas with his fiancé, Becca Lawson – agreed that this type of rental store was definitely needed in the community. Becca pulled together a business plan while wrapping up her software consulting job. With the help from his friend, Mark Ellis, Giesie built the first building of the current Indian Peaks Rental on Giesie’s property at County Road 85 and US Highway 40. Becca purchased the computer software and hardware and started inventorying the tools and equipment that Leiser purchased from a rental store that was closing in Pueblo.  To complete the picture, Jon Smith, who owned Continental Service, a small engine and tool repair company came to work for them as the mechanic. Jon has since moved on to re-open a tool repair shop in Fraser, CO with his good friend Chris Kulpa, called Trestle Tool. Indian Peaks wishes him all the best in his venture and life-long dream.

While Mike Leiser continues to teach skiing, he is also a vibrant part of team Indian Peaks. He offers his expertise as a consultant, and actually manages the shop floor when needed. Mike Giesie is the store’s managing partner, who does everything that needs to be done – from educating the customer in safe and proper use of a tool or piece of equipment, to delivery, to preparing the equipment to be rented again. Becca Giesie does the store’s business administration. Marc Pescion joined us in late 2011 as a service technician and delivery driver and Tom Dady re-joined us in spring of 2012 as a service technician. Together they have many years of experience and special talents that fulfill our shop needs.
