Michael believes in servant leadership, that a boss should work for his employees, and not the other way around. He has cultivated this belief over the last 23 years in the staffing industry, watching, listening, learning, failing, growing, and leading. Michael has worked at all levels in staffing, from a temporary industrial employee to customer service and sales, to President. Taking everything he believes in and has learned, Michael points LaunchNW upward with a clear strategy, values, and purpose, always knowing that our employees are the most important part of the story.
