Mike is an inspiring leader with an undeniable track record of delivering results for global brands and a knack for developing diverse, supremely talented teams within agencies. He is a strong believer in transformational power of bold, smart ideas. And he understands how to build brand momentum and influence action through the seamless coordination of customer-centric strategy, data-driven media, and best-in-class creative.
Mike has worked at world-class agencies including Leo Burnett in Italy and Switzerland and Ogilvy in New York and Singapore. And he has directly impacted the fortunes of Fortune 500 clients and brands such as Moet-Hennessy, Coleman, 7UP, Kraft Foods, Post Cereal, Coca-Cola, General Motors, Allstate Insurance and Philip Morris.
In his previous role as SVP, Director of Account Leadership at Periscope, Mike managed key accounts including UnitedHealth Group for communications, media-tech delivery platform and analytics; Cox Communications for Retail/digital engagement and B2B platforms; Bellisio Foods for owned-, paid-, and earned- media; and Summit Brewing for new product marketing platforms and creative.
But perhaps Mike’s greatest asset is his character. He is a steady, thoughtful leader who—through both his style and his actions–consistently earns the admiration of his clients, his teams, and his peers.
When he’s not leading effective B2B and B2C brand and performance marketing initiatives, Mike loves to take in the Minnesota outdoors by skiing and hiking with his family and spending time with his teenagers, their activities and schoolwork – except for biology.
