I've known Mike ever since my time in the Jani industry and I appreciate his professionalism and knowledge. He's working hard to promote education of environmental practices in the Jani industry and provide useful, relevant information the the FM community.
While only a relatively short period of time we spent together at UL Environment, I came to appreciate Mike’s knowledge and passion of the JanSan/Professional Cleaning Industry, and the various Certifications for Green. Mike is a great leader, providing clear direction of the mission and what needs to be done in order to reach it. Mike was an inspiration and encouraging while providing insightful and pragmatic advice.
I reported to Mike at UL Environment, and during my time under Mike's leadership, I learned more about myself and my profession than I had under any other manager. Mike is tough but fair, challenging people to be self-critical, take chances, push their limits and develop their strengths. Mike leads with intelligence, passion, humor and humility. He strives to not simply manage, but to empower those he manages to become leaders.

It is with great pleasure and pride that I write this recommendation letter for Mike. I have had the pleasure and benefit to work both with and for Mike for over 20 years now. Mike is a consummate professional with a passion for results. I have found Mike to be an excellent executor of plans, highly visionary and uniquely relevant for our industry, with skill sets not generally seen in others. Perhaps one of Mike's key strengths is to recognize and seek out talent, and arrange people into the right seats on the bus that compliment each team member's strengths and offset weaknesses with other team members' strengths. As a consultant, Mike is uniquely qualified to assist businesses in a myriad of ways, from sales to operations, and he has a keen ability to sort through reams of data and come up with a clear and concise prescription for success.

Director of Development at Larose et Fils
In 1998 when ISO Cleaning Solutions was formed, I was the Canadian Manager of Purchasing responsible for cleaning supplies for Sodexo, a multi-billion dollar, international company. In dealing with Mike, it became quickly very clear that he was very professional and tenacious. He easily demonstrated his ability to learn what we required by his listening skills and knowledge, then presented his solution and the added value ISO can provide. From there, he marshaled the necessary resources to execute the deliverables and solve any issues as they arose. We were ISO’s first customer, and Sodexo still remains a customer, built on the solid foundation Mike developed. Mike’s negotiation and contract development skills are evident, he is very organized and detail oriented, builds solid relationships easily, and communicates very effectively.
