As Vice President, Mike has developed, grown, and overseen Shaker’s in-house media teams and has expanded relationships with – and negotiated on behalf of – numerous key agency clients. He has been instrumental in setting social media strategy and has developed distinctive and recognizable campaigns that have capitalized on media convergence.
Mike is sought widely by recruiting conference organizers and has spoken both domestically and internationally on the topics of retention, new and emerging media, and branding through community outreach. When he’s not leading strategic planning sessions, his love for media plunges him elbow deep in the latest comScore, Arbitron, and Harris Interactive reports.
Mike brings quick wit and high strategy to his clients’ recruitment endeavors – helping them move from transactional to relational recruiting. His client portfolio includes Kellogg, Target, Redbox, Octapharma Plasma and UPS.
Never one to sit still for too long, Mike likes to travel anywhere he can explore the great outdoors. He enjoys bicycling and hiking and is a big fan of college basketball. He also has spent many a year waiting for the Chicago Cubs to actually make it to the World Series. Now after finally winning the Commissioner’s Trophy, there’s nothing more to say but “Hey, Hey, Hey” and “Holy Cow”.
