Mike began his business career in 1978 with the Commodity Exchange and by 1994 was the Vice President of Trading Operations when the company merged with the New York Mercantile Exchange. He left the New York Mercantile Exchange in 2007 as the Vice President of Operations and went to work for MetLife as a Financial Advisor . Prior experience managing trading floors as well as being involved in the long term planning of the trading floors seems very different than working as a Financial Advisor but it did provide a sound business foundation that resulted in a seamless transition.
In his role, as Financial Advisor, Mike works with clients to help them reach their financial goals. Mike believes that education and knowledge is ultimately best for his clients and regardless of what solutions have been implemented, he will review them periodically with his clients.
Mike has an MBA from Iona College and a BA from Herbert H. Lehman College (City University of New York ).
Mike resides in Cortlandt Manor, NY with his wife. He has three children and one grandchild, with a second expected in March, 2017.
