Mike as Matchmaker
“Basically, Mike is “Mr. Security”. As a fellow security executive, I continually am impressed with both his knowledge and contacts. I recently landed one of the largest customers ever for our company because of Mike’s recommendation. He understood that his customer and our products were a perfect match and presented a ‘win-win’ situation for all.” — Ted Humphrey, Security Professional
Mike attended St. Bonaventure University on a basketball scholarship. Mike had the pleasure of playing against Oscar Robertson on the hardcourt in the NIT… a true highlight.
