Administrator Greg Dancer

It is with great pleasure that we announce Greg Dancer has accepted the position as MSI Administrator.  Greg has been with Michigan State Industries for more than 20 years and brings a wealth of knowledge into this position.  Greg's appointment is effective March 19, 2023.  Greg will continue the MSI Mission of providing Michigan adults in custody with real-world opportunities and work skills training.  He also believes providing offenders with marketable skills gives them better opportunities to become successful contributing members of society upon release. MSI currently operates 12 different factories in 9 facilities across the state. All of the MSI employees do remarkable things to keep us successful and moving forward in a positive direction. Correctional Industries vs private sector industries present completely different challenges. It's not easy working inside prisons. They are full of obstacles that private sector operations never have to worry about.  Despite that our employees maintain safe operations and serve as mentors, coaches, and trainers to the offenders we employ statewide.  On behalf of all of us at MSI, I want to thank you for your support. We could not do it without you!!
