As an industry leader, Mike continually encourages the development, use and sharing of best practices and inspires other companies to do the same. That is why his expertise is often called upon to author articles for trade publications or to serve as a keynote speaker at industry events. He subscribes to the selfless mentality that if the industry is viewed as providing a higher level of strategic value, then we will all share in its success.

Devon Birch, Director of Membership at MHI and manager of the Young Professionals Network stated, We started YPN to give the younger generation a place to network and grow their talents.
