Mike co-founded Greenskies in 2008, then managed the company’s transition from a start-up to the leading commercial and industrial ("C&I") solar development firm in the United States with a customer base that includes Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, Target and several of the largest electric utilities in the world.
As the company’s President and CEO for over eight years, he was responsible for the architecture and management of the business from deal origination, project financing, engineering, procurement, construction to asset management. His work ethic blends with the enthusiasm, leadership and the industry knowledge needed to make complex business decisions on a daily basis. Mike was directly responsible for closing over $500mm of solar project finance, building and owning over 400 commercial solar projects ranging from 200kW to 5MW, creating industry-leading O&M and asset management departments and expanding the company's footprint across 23 states from California to South Carolina. Greenskies was ranked #1 by market share for commercial and industrial solar developers by Greentech Media and was named one of the Best Places to Work by the Hartford Courant in 2016.
Mike was named "40 Under 40" by the Hartford Business Journal in 2012, and again by Connecticut Magazine in 2017. He was a national merit scholar at Boston University and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali, West Africa. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Big Life, a wildlife conservation and security group based in Kenya.
