Mike is a California native, who has been living in New England for the past 11 years. When asked what would make him leave San Diego, the typical answer is “the weather…. 70 and sunny gets old after a while!” Living on the East coast has opened Mike’s eyes to new adventures such as snow blowing and rooting for winning sports teams (Sorry San Diego!). These teams also include the middle and high school Lacrosse and Football teams where his two sons play.
Michael joined Velocity Procurement in 2019 because he believed that the organization’s people, vision, and methodologies were uniquely suited to address the glaring gaps that can be found in so many organizations Source to Pay processes. As luck would have it, it turns out that one of the managing partners was born in the same hospital where Mike’s wife manages the Medical Staff.
