Nickname: Mr. Nice Guy or Mike^3

Could there be anyone more genuine? Michael (as some like to call him to avoid confusion with Mike & Mike) is downright just a good guy. He puts others first. What greater characteristic is there than that? Selfless, kind, and always willing to offer help or to give the friendliest Guten Morgen you’ve ever heard.

But don’t let his nice demeanor fool you. Hidden behind that gentle spirit is a guy with some mean analytical and accounting skills. He has an accuracy rate that would rival any machine. Even though Michael is our newest team member, he has dug in his heels and made himself at home, and that’s because he belongs here.
