Understands the specific objectives of each individual project...

I have had the opportunity to know Mike personally for a number of years and have enlisted his expertise and talents. He is always ready to serve, understands the specific objectives of each individual project, and brings a fresh perspective. Above all, his motivations are always to make great things happen and he puts his total energy into the effort.
