Mike is our Director of Client Solutions, aka our “Client-Focused Problem Solver Extraordinaire,” with about two decades of experience, mainly in the Finance and Accounting industry. Working with new and existing clients to help them achieve their hiring needs, Mike leads all aspects of Motus Accounting and Finance recruiting offerings. He loves the ability to positively affect people’s lives and that no two days are ever the same. In such a tight market, Mike recognizes and motivates with a sense of urgency when it comes to making hiring decisions. He is also inspired by the notion of seeking to help others while expecting nothing in return – especially in leadership roles. Mike has a Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences from Portland State University.
Along with being an avid fan of the Portland Trail Blazers (and longtime season ticket holder!), Mike loves playing golf as much as possible. He has been a youth basketball coach for many years, teaching young “hoopers” the value of competition, self-confidence, and developing skill sets. Mike’s claim to basketball fame is when he beat Shaquille O’Neal in a game of Pop-a-Shot by 60 points at a Portland sports bar back in 1995!
What does he think sets Motus apart? “Internal leadership, setting the bar high regarding goals and customer service, and incorporating fun into what we do.”
