Born with a golf club in his hand, Mike brings fun, light-hearted humor, and enthusiasm for life to FP Transitions.
Mike has played golf for as long he can remember and achieved his first hole-in-one at the age of ten, so it should come as no surprise that he played golf for Oregon State University while he studied journalism.
In his early career, he found himself working in business and advertising, and eventually landed a job with Nike Golf as a sales representative for golf apparel. Winning both the Regional and National Sales Rep of the Year awards, he helped develop the concept for the Mobile Pro Shop when he noticed apparel and equipment were competing for the same business. The Mobile Pro Shop is now considered an industry standard in the golf business.
With the spirit of an entrepreneur, Mike built a business from scratch and later sold it. As a former business owner, Mike understands the financial and emotional hurdles that go into selling a business, and he brings that experience with him to the FPT team. Mike works across multiple departments, including Business Development, Legal, and Valuation & Member Services. He supports clients and helps them navigate their experience with FP Transitions, ensuring each client gets the most out of their engagement and has the best experience possible.
In his free time, you can find him playing golf or enjoying the Oregon outdoors with his two daughters. He continues to play competitive amateur golf in the Pacific Northwest.
