Co-Founder, Managing Partner
Mike is co-founder of Hammer Haley and a managing partner since August 2001.
With a history of successful client engagements for both established and emerging organizations, Mike has a special affinity for those who see themselves as market aggressors; as innovators and disruptors; as the pioneers of the digital frontier, and the leaders in diversity.
A graduate of Southern Methodist University, Mike’s early career was a series of expanding leadership roles in marketing, general management and line-of-business strategy in the forest products sector, including such industry leaders as Unisource and Boise Cascade.
In January 1999, Mike co-founded and was President of MPX Inc., an electronic exchange trading platform for large volume buyers and sellers of cut-size paper. This venture was sold, and Mike became VP of Sales for the new parent company, a $50MM, VC-backed Internet exchange platform.
