For those who still can't quite accept what's being revealed on this blog, maybe you'll believe the State of Michigan's official business entity records.
Here's the story in a nutshell: Steven Ingersoll formed IVL, Inc. on September 23, 2003. That company changed its name to Excel Management, Inc. on January 9, 2007 (more about that a bit later).
Ingersoll had previously formed "Excel Management, Inc." as a "domestic profit corporation" on August 11, 1999. That earlier entity was automatically dissolved by the State of Michigan on July 15, 2006, likely due to the fact that its required annual reports had not been filed.
On January 9, 2007, IVL, Inc. became "Excel Management, Inc." when Mark Noss, an officer of the corporation, signed and submitted on its behalf the following form:
But, unlike Ingersoll's earlier iteration of Excel Management, this corporation's paperwork is completely up-to-date.
In fact, its 2014 annual report was dutifully filed on April 15, 2014...five days after Steven Ingersoll was federally indicted for fraud and tax evasion!
Here's a cherry to top your sundae-- at left is the 2011 Excel Management, Inc. State of Michigan filing, the most recent version showing its officers and directors.
Still think there's no link?
