We worked together
Mike is a tenacious, driven entrepreneur who successfully built and sold his software company to Benjamin Moore. In addition to his natural ... creativity, his focus is on sales and the bottom line - a rare and valuable mix of skills. Most importantly for me though is Mike's sharp wit and sense of humor, vital attributes in any start-up situation in my opinion.

They're my advisor
You bet. He built his earlier company, Eco Color Co, and sold it to a large corporation. We met as members in Vistage, a group of CEOs who ... he truned to for advice and guidance. He was also a wonderful provider of advice and guidance. He's ambitious, smart and determined to succeed.
