After a gainful career in domestic and international manufacturing sales and sales management, Michael began his profession in the financial services sector in 2002 as a personal producer of health and life insurance services focused on the micro and small business owner marketplace. In 2008, Michael contributed to the formation of a collaborative consulting firm focused on a systematic approach that prepared business owners to exit their business at the highest enterprise value possible and securing wealth through personal financial management solutions.
In 2012 Michael transitioned to leading the sales and operation efforts for a startup SaaS firm. The company provided exclusive software tools used by CPA firms, wealth management firms, and exit planning consultants to assist their clients in identifying and ultimately quantifying how underdeveloped operations negatively impacted enterprise value and growth. The software then guided consultants through a methodical improvement process to maximize enterprise value.
The experience of business exit planning transitioned to an independent broker approach helping organizations and individuals finance business acquisitions and commercial real estate projects..
Michael graduated from Truman State University, has a Master of Science in Management from Baker University, and achieved a certification from the Leadership in Life Institute.
