Michael Stamm, Our esteemed founder
Michael Stamm

With over 35 years experience in the moving business, this is Mike’s second successful moving company (he was previously founder and president of Moishe’s Transfer in Los Angeles). It was Mike who came up with the company name, at a time when he was involved in regional theater. He thought a moving company would be just the ticket for him and fellow actors to earn income during the day, leaving evenings and weekends free for rehearsals and performances. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) the actors didn’t like heavy lifting. So, when Starving Artists Movers showed signs of viability, Mike tapered off his acting career and has been the company’s president since he founded it in 1987. Mike is no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the company, but is still a guiding voice in the company's culture, standards, policies, and services.

Office Staff

You’ll meet members of our crews during your move, but below is the team that sets the standards and keeps the operation moving smoothly.

Rachele Benson, General Manager/Human Resources Manager

Rachele has spent her career building skills to optimize customer experiences. Successful businesses have long treated their number one assets, employees, as customers. Rachele shares the commitment; understanding that happy employees translate to happy customers. She strives for 100% customer satisfaction. Rachele is responsible for the direction and coordination of the staff to help achieve company goals and efficiency, and result in outstanding customer service. Rachele has been involved in local and national organizations serving as a foster parent, a volunteer: CASA Guardian ad Litem, American Red Cross Disaster Team member and has partnered with her dogs to provide pet therapy.

Chris Babbitt, Operations Manager

Chris had prior experience at a nationwide moving business before he joined us in 2004. He began as a Helper and worked his way up to Driver, Foreman, Lead Foreman, and — in late 2012 — he became our Operations Manager. Besides his knowledge of what's involved in a well-done and professional packing and/or moving job, Chris brings a talent for creative problem-solving, and a command of all the details that go into the operational side of our business. Chris also pitches in with phone sales, warehouse management, on-site estimates, and occasionally he gets out to be part of a moving crew. His commitment to the company, and to all of our customers, is exceptional... all done with a smile on his face and an ever-welcome sense of humor.

Tanya Cullinane, Office Manager

Tanya joined our team in November of 2017, bringing with her a strong background in Accounting and Office Management. In fact, Tanya obtained Associate Degrees in both fields from NHCTC in Berlin, and has been working in these fields since 2001, which has given her the opportunity to continue expanding her skill sets. Tanya's professional and friendly demeanor creates a welcoming influence in the office while managing to contribute the highest level of care to her various tasks. Tanya keeps our books in liaison with our accountant, in addition to her duties as Office Manager and Assistant to the General Manager. As with all office staff, Tanya also handles communications with customers and potential customers, answering questions, problem solving, booking jobs, and completing the paperwork associated with each job. Tanya is married and has two children, as well as a dog and two cats. She loves outside activities, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Sandy Burr, Customer Service Manager

Sandy brings decades of business experience in multiple industries. Her delivery of Customer Service is stellar. When you speak with her you will know immediately that you are in good hands and will have any and all of your questions and or concerns fully addressed. When she’s not taking exceptional care of you, Sandy enjoys time with her husband gardening, landscaping and sewing (-though that she does alone!). Sandy’s favorite pastime is spending time with her three sons and their families.
