C12 Chair since 2019
Michael leverages his over forty years as a high-tech industry businessman with his early career as a Pastor to challenge and equip senior executives to live out their faith while they build successful businesses. He has served as Chairman, CEO, Owner, COO, and Executive Vice President in public, private and not-for-profit companies. Michael guided four of the companies to lead their industries as well as served four publicly traded companies. His teams scaled to over 230 people with revenues above $95 million. He had the pleasure of building and aligning domestic and international executive teams. And two of his high-tech companies were successfully acquired. He has also served as a Chairman and advisor in not-for-profit organizations including RightNow Media. Over 15 years ago Michael had a conversation with an executive in a not-for-profit where he served as board Chairman that changed him. God made him fully aware that on Sunday we said our “work is worship” but we did not make clear how to actually do it. The question facing us is how we fully serve God while building a successful business. Today his passion is making clear what work as worship is to CEOs and Business Owners.
