Chief Growth Officer and Crypto Lead at ExO Works
Helping companies innovate like startups
Mike is focused on making sure that ExO is there whenever clients, partners, and agents need help building exponential organizations. He also leads the ExO Works crypto practice, including promoting the CivX token economy.
Mike started his career as a software developer, creating custom experiences for companies including IBM, Pfizer, and the Discovery Channel. This led to him co-founding SlideRocket, a cloud-based presentation platform that was acquired by VMWare in 2011.
Since then, Mike has worked with both startups and enterprises—helping them adapt breakthrough technologies in order to grow quickly and outcompete other players. He was Managing Partner at Rokk3r 10xU and ran the Venture Hive accelerator program in Miami. In both roles he mentored a wide range of innovators—from startup founders to corporate executives—on how to leverage exponential technologies to build high-growth companies.
“Mike is the ultimate business Swiss Army knife: whatever the challenge or problem a company faces, Mike has the skills to solve it. Starting with Product Development, Mike was able to work with our development team and our clients to identify, define and implement key features that addressed market needs and provided real value to our clients. He drove development of our first iPad App which was huge success with our clients.”
— Paul Shapiro, CEO at CustomShow
“Mike has a unique ability to craft a vision for a company/product, translate that vision into focused actions through analytics, and then implement the plan. He’s is one of the few executives that I know that can handle all three. Mike is tenacious, focused, and engaging.”
— Rick Longenecker, President at Chief Sales Executive
“After only 3 months, Mike was able to take me from a co-founder who was handling our company’s sales, to a proper Head of Sales. He has the experience and knowledge to jump right in and start making a real impact from day one. He taught me how to set up, manage, and scale a truly data driven sales organization. Thanks to his ideas and counsel we have successfully grown our business to a consistent 7 figure run rate.”
