About Mike

Mike is Managing Director of Private Equity for SBI.  He helps lead value creation programs for PE firms and their portfolio companies. He also assists with strategy development and deal model development with PE firm deal teams and their respective companies and targets.


Mike has the unique ability to uncover the things that will drive real equity value within companies, and then help the SBI team and company management teams lead the execution necessary to unlock that value. Mike is comfortable in a board room, on a sales call, or in front of spreadsheets building operating models and compensation plans. One of Mike’s biggest strengths is taking very complicated concepts, and finding a way to communicate them in an incredibly effective manner.
