Mike’s accomplishments include more than 27 years of experience across all aspects of business operations with a focus on developing people, strategies, and processes that drive long-term achievement in startups, high-growth companies, and complex organizations.

In our discussion, we learned:

  • Michael has been married to his high school sweetheart for 28 years(!);
  • Michael & his wife have 3 children together, and they all have a shared passion for music; his wife is also a “rock & roll mom” and in a band that does gigs around NJ;
  • Michael’s wife MaryAnn is also an entrepreneur who runs a highly successful preschool in New Jersey, and is his biggest mentor for his daily business dealings;
  • Michael’s father worked at EF Hutton.  Michael frequently visited his father in his office and knew from childhood that he wanted to be in finance as well;
  • Michael’s personal passions also include kickboxing & fundraising in support of advancing mentorship and financial literacy for children, which he did in his last role in addition to his other responsibilities, prior to joining in the Group President role.
