Mike quickly identifies key deficiencies and expedites methods to correct them.  With his integrity, intelligence and energy Mike helps develop plans and teaches techniques to drive businesses to the next level.

After getting a degree in Business Administration, Mike began his career as an underwriter trainee in commercial insurance and has literally worked his way to the top.
