As both the Managing Director and Executive Creative Director of VML New York, Mike leads the agency on a variety of domestic and global accounts including Dell, Chevron, Motorola, Shiseido, Legoland, NBA, Kellogg’s, International Olympics Committee, Hillshire Farms, Ballpark and Xerox. Known for his creative insight and passion for ideas, Mike has moved comfortably between all disciplines of marketing for a wide range of clients. Possessing strong leadership skills, a never-say-quit attitude and a questionable sense of humor to match, he believes great ideas can live and come from anywhere. More importantly, that those ideas embed themselves into the audience in a way that enriches their daily lives. Mike has over a decade of management experience and has worked with business-to-business and business-to-consumer clients across industries as diverse as health care, consumer products, telecom and chemicals. His award-winning work for Virgin, Xerox, adidas, LG, and ESPN has proven his ability to articulate complex issues with strategically smart solutions.
