As a former public company CFO, it’s no surprise that Mike is analytical. But he always brings together his love of data and innovation with a pragmatic approach to the companies he has started, as well as the companies in which he invests.
Mike helps drive investments in data-focused companies for the business and tech-enabled services sector at ABS Capital. And as a venture partner at ABS Capital, he has had recent experience as both an investor and a start-up founder. In fact, he has recently been heavily involved in starting three companies, successfully taking them through critical stages of growth and exit events. He shares his entrepreneurial spirit and deep data expertise with portfolio companies — collaborating with a strategic operator’s perspective to help them make their next great leap.
Prior to ABS, Mike helped launch Millennial Media as a venture capitalist and later joined the company to lead its successful growth phase and IPO (NYSE:MM). Prior to Millennial Media, Mike was a principal at Columbia Capital where he led numerous investments in digital media, software, and communications technology companies. Mike has also held various operating roles in early and growth stage technology businesses. Most recently, Mike founded and is the CEO of ICX Media, a digital media software and data analytics company.
