CSAS Executives

John Andrews, President and Owner

At Central States the buck stops with John Andrews, who has hands-on involvement with every project. John sets the guidelines for, and stands behind, every Central States design/build system — personally assuring all plans are engineered with the maximum safety factor.

That is what you would expect from John’s nearly four decade long background in fire safety. His leadership is why Central States has built so many lasting relationships with customers. We stand apart from the competition through our can-do attitude, our courteous employees, and our penchant for clear communication — such as giving customers their team’s cell phone numbers to call anytime.

When away from Central States — which isn’t often — John enjoys travel with his wife and teenage daughter. He’s also an avid fly fisherman.


Michael Sublewski, Chief Financial Officer and Owner

While our crews are running with pipes and sprinklers, Michael Sublewski is behind our scenes running the numbers. From accounting to payroll, from insurance certificates to employee benefits, if it has to do with money everyone rests easy knowing it’s in Michael’s hands.

Michael has a strong, varied background in managing financial office operations, and is a chief reason why Central States is a financially stable company that customers can count on. He is also an IT expert, overseeing our computer operations and ensuring that forms, contracts and other documents are processed accurately and on time.

Bicycling is a big part of Michael’s off hours, and he enjoys off-road rides with his wife and three children. An accomplished flute player, Michael performs throughout the year in various venues. He and his family also enjoy international travel.
