Mike graduated from McMaster University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Following university, he started his career working as a Financial Advisor for a year and a half before setting out to do something he had always aspired to do – travel the world. He spent a year travelling Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Upon his return, he decided to move away from financial advisory services, into outside sales where he felt he could thrive a little more. He worked with Canon for 3 years, where he benefitted greatly from their world-class sales training program, and went on to develop his “hunter” mentality. Following Canon, Mike worked for 3 years at Shaw Dental, in a much more relationship management oriented sales environment, where he enhanced the “farming” side of his sales skill set.
Mike Joined the Global team in 2015, when he saw the opportunity to combine all of his previous work experience, and his love for travel, into one. Being able to work on a Global platform and represent clients and candidates from all over the world was something that was very appealing to Mike.
In his spare time, you can find him on the golf course, playing guitar, or hanging out with family or friends. You might even catch him at a poker table – he is a fairly accomplished poker player, having competed in 10 countries, across 4 continents, on various globally recognized poker tours including: World Series of Poker, World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour, and Russian Poker Tour.
