I have ten years experience running every aspect of a small business in the field of publishing services. Also more than fifteen years working inside major educational publishing/services companies.
Mike and I worked together on a tough, challenging project at McGraw-Hill. If there was a problem -- and there were several -- Mike's approach to a solution was creative and workable. When he moved for another opportunity we found it very hard to replace him with someone of like talent. Mike is one of the brightest people I've ever know -- he's creative and he really does "think outside the box." I would work with him on any project, any time.
I have worked with Mike at various companies over more than 20 years and he is one of the two or three most insightful, forward looking, creative and hard working publishing people I have ever known.
Mike has an amazing combination of skills and knowledge that make him an invaluable member of any team. His understanding of the publishing world is amazing and based on many years in the trenches. Finally, he is the hardest worker I have ever met. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
I had the distinct honor of working directly with Mike at Pearson Education on multiple initiatives. Mike was directly responsible for delivering several innovative content management and distance learning solutions for the Higher Education market. His deep knowledge of curriculum and product development proved invaluable when navigating the known and unknown land mines for these highly complex projects. Since leaving Pearson, I have recruited Mike to help me with both fulltime and consulting positions on multiple occasions. Mike is about as good as you can get in my book. An intelligent sincere individual who values the importance of a strong team and practices what he preaches.
Mike's just a great guy to work with.
Innovative and committed.
Mike led a team of professionals in Educator Applications delivering significant contributions in both programs and revenue to Pearson's Learning Network. Mike showed significant business tenacity and an ability to stay focused during uncertain businesss conditions.
