Mike is a Toledo-area native. After earning his degree in business and captaining the football team at Fordham University in New York City, Mike worked on Wall Street for two years, learning what really drives shareholder value.
He returned home to work for Randy Root, a visionary in organizational learning and employee engagement. At Root Learning (then just a start-up), he helped organizations implement large-scale change initiatives for more than eight years. Mike founded ContXt in 2003.
Mike is a big fan of the Great Outdoors. He loves kayaking and hiking (he proposed to Karen at the top of Saddleback Mountain on the Appalachian Trail). He lives in Toledo with his wife and two sons.
