In his more than 15 years as an investment banker, Mike has worked with a broad range of technology companies, including software, IT technology-enabled business services, healthcare and financial technology, digital media, e-learning and managed services companies. He’s developed extensive M&A and private capital raising experience and provides senior-level expertise and counsel to Consilium clients. Mike has worked with a wide range of on-premise and cloud computing companies using both SaaS and perpetual license models, many of which have been involved in data analytics, regulatory compliance, banking technology, electronic health information and mobile applications.

Mike joined Consilium Partners in 2010 through a merger with Adventum Group, a Boston-based middle market investment banking firm he founded in 2000 after a successful career as an entrepreneur. Earlier in his career, he founded a healthcare software company that he grew into a market leader before successfully selling it to NASDAQ-listed healthcare information firm. Mike then joined the acquiring company’s executive management team, where he helped to grow revenue from $90 million to over $250 million through the acquisition and integration of six companies over 18 months. This aggressive acquisition strategy led to the company sale to one of the largest software firms in the UK for over $900 million in an all-cash transaction. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Physics from the University of Connecticut. He holds the FINRA Series 79, 63 and 24 licenses.
