Founder & CEO, Impact Makers
Michael founded Impact Makers in 2006. Before establishing Virginia’s first benefit corporation, he spent the early years of his career as a Senior Consultant with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in France. His tenure allowed him to consult, with increasingly complex engagements, throughout the EMEAI (Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India) region. As a result, Michael has lived or worked in seven countries and spent significant time in over 25 nations. Later, while an independent consultant, Michael completed an MBA from Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. After returning to the States, he accepted a position as the Manager of Application Development at Health Management Corporation (HMC), a subsidiary of WellPoint Blue Cross / Blue Shield. Prior to launching Impact Makers, Michael was the Director of Product Development at First Health Services Corporation.
