Ok, so, why the basketball?  Well, in Mike’s own words………

“Ever since I was a kid in New York City, I’ve had a passion for basketball.  I’ve studied it, coached, organized leagues and still actually play full court every week!  When you think about it, to win, the game requires a successful combination of individuality, teamwork, creativity and competitive play, which is really everything life and work are all about!!!!!”

He has spent the last 15+ years as an executive in a variety of technology companies and offers a unique blend of executive acumen, team building and solution development credited with a strong ROI and operational improvements.  “I’ve learned the following principles over the years and I’m thrilled to be implementing them at Workforce180-  One, simplify things making it easy for customers to do business with us. Two, change is good, embrace it and become a market leader. Three, hire smart people who have a positive attitude and can continually energize and ignite the company. Four, pay attention to details, drive to be different, empower people and create a standard of values second to none.  Lastly, understand the market conditions and deliver solutions the customer wants and needs.”  Jerry has
