Mike gained management experience early in his career by working his way up within his family's automotive service business but left to pursue his passion for software technology.
After growing the software division of a Montana Internet company which subsequently sold to a national conglomerate, Mike lead software architecture and project management teams for global consulting firm Accenture working with clients such as Nokia, British Telecom, Oracle/BEA and Sun Microsystems. This work took him from the San Francisco Bay Area around the US and abroad.
In 2003, Mike started his own company providing e-commerce solutions to small businesses, evolving into consulting and crisis management for large enterprises. The company reorganized into Goomzee in 2007.
