On the commercial side, he was the relationship manager for privately held companies with revenue between $25 million and $200 million. He was responsible for credit products, treasury management and investments. On the investment banking side, he coordinated capital raising, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and derivative solutions for bank clients. He has spent the last 20 years leading privately held companies in a variety of industries. In each of these roles, Mike had full P&L responsibility and led all aspects of the company, including sales and marketing, production, personnel development and financial controls.
For seven years, Mike served as president of Scougal Rubber Corporation, a manufacturer of molded rubber products for a variety of industries, including bridge construction, food processing and automotive.
