Regional Director – Southern Colorado
Business accelerator and pursuer of all innovative things, Michael embraces the daily challenge of change and contributes to the successes of others and the communities he serves. Having raised four children and successfully operated two companies in Colorado Springs, he continues to enjoy the quality of life and scenic wonder Colorado has to offer.
Growing up as the son of a US Army First Sergeant, Michael’s family of five was fortunate to spend many years abroad before finishing high school in rural Louisiana with placement each year in the Louisiana State Literary Rally.
Enlistment in the US Air Force was next. Michael spent 7 years in multiple IT roles across the globe earning several commendation medals for exemplary service and contributions within the ICBM, Air Defense and Missile Warning Operations and communications systems. He also earned a campaign medal for his tour in the Middle East.
After leaving the military, he worked for and consulted with Denver Health, the City and County of Denver, and CHA as a Business Continuity expert. The work of his team eventually led to Colorado legislation being passed in favor of mandating health care disaster preparedness.
After completing both his undergraduate and graduate degrees locally, Michael moved into the manufacturing industry as a sales & marketing professional. He looks forward to each new engagement and loves to combine opportunities for work with travel and sightseeing.
