Mike fell in love with riding his bike at a very young age. The childhood joy never faded; rather it developed into a lifelong passion. He has ridden throughout much of the U.S. and Europe, on roads and on trails, savoring the distinct and timeless two-wheeled perspective and has been involved in competitive mountain biking since he first got his then-NORBA license 20+ years ago.
Previously, Mike was Vice President of Marketing for Cox Communications where he was accountable for all marketing activities in the southwest region. Mike has also held senior leadership positions with CenturyLink (formerly Qwest Communications) and Bank of America. Mike is an active volunteer with the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy and formerly served on the board of directors at Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona.
A graduate of the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, majoring in finance and business economics, Mike has also completed the Executive Management Program at the Harvard Business School. Mike resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.
