Peter Mahler is founder and President of Mahler Enterprises, Inc. An entrepreneur from an early age, Peter started his first business in high school when he built a specialized cleaning service for 90 families along Milwaukee’s North Shore.  He continued serving those cleaning clients while obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Marquette University.

When Peter founded MEI in 1989, his goal was simple: Help people live better. Today, MEI has offices in Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs serving nearly a thousand clients whose needs include professional staffing, commercial cleaning, and residential and commercial real estate. The company’s divisions include MahlerClean, a commercial cleaning service that maintains millions of square feet of office, industrial, medical and institutional space per day and Mahler Private Staffing, a boutique retained search firm specializing in staffing fine homes and offices throughout the US, in addition to consulting and training services.

In Palm Springs, California, Peter Mahler serves as Managing Director of El Paseo Holdings, LLC, which in 2009 renovated three Class 1 historic buildings into a new retail complex that has attracted national retailers. Mahler is also a partner in a minority-owned and operated national cleaning service that specializes in NBA, NFL and MLB sports arenas. Peter’s newest venture is Mahler Real Estate Group, a boutique brokerage specializing in the marketing and sale of Southeastern Wisconsin’s finest homes and properties.

A variety of civic organizations and communities benefit from the time, expertise and generosity of MEI and its employees. Over the years, MEI’s employees have collected food, winter coats, and backpacks/school supplies to share with members of the community.  Peter Mahler is a member of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Desert Group, and the Wisconsin chapter of Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO).
