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.
As a managing general partner at ABS Capital, Mike helps set the direction of the firm by managing the investment process, working with our investment professionals, and raising capital for our funds. With experience as both an investor and a start-up founder, Mike oversees the business and tech-enabled services investing efforts at ABS Capital. He was previously 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 joining ABS in 2015, Mike helped launch Millennial Media as a venture capitalist and later joined the company to lead its successful growth phase and IPO (NYSE:MM). Before Millennial Media, Mike was a principal at Columbia Capital where he led numerous investments in digital media, software, and communications technology companies.
