Mike is a seasoned professional with 18 years experience as the President/CEO of a Boutique Recruiting
Practice specializing in the acquisition and placement of Senior Level Management within the Packaging
and Banking Industry. Before starting his practice he spent 19 years with a Fortune 100 and 300 Packaging
Company managing Sales and Marketing and Operations Management at the Corporate, Divisional and Regional
levels. He has a unique understanding and in-depth knowledge of business practices plus a network of Industry
contacts that are second to none. He personally targets a select group of clientele within the Packaging and
Banking Industry and has staffed complete organizations from C-level down to Divisional and the Operations level.
He earned a BS in Marketing and Finance from the University of Toledo and is married with two grown children.
A few of his steadfast business philosophies include: “never schedule a meeting between clients unless you’re
willing to purchase their company and hire them to come work for you”. “I’m in business to enhance their career,
not destroy it”. “I’d rather ask their permission than beg them for forgiveness”. “Never let procedures become
so important that a clients purpose is lost to bureaucratic stonewalling”. “There is no chance, no destiny, no
fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul”.
People who get my attention are those who have a vision about where they want to be in the next 3/5 years. My
clients always seek the “top performers” within the Packaging Industry. They are the shakers and rollers in
Plastics, Metal and Molded products in the Agriculture, Beverage, Closures, Cans Tins & Tubes, Food, Medical
& Pharmaceutical, Personal Care & Cosmetics Industries. Secondary practice targets the Banking and Finance
Industries. Functional areas of recruitment include: C-Level, Presidents, VP’s and AVP’s.
