Every business that's built for the long haul needs a growth engine. And BVK has precisely that in Michael. As one of the founding partners of BVK, Michael has managed to generate phenomenal growth, turning a small local shop into a national player. Key to BVK's success has been his belief in creating an environment that reduces layers and bureaucracy, and encourages initiative and personal growth. As comfortable in a boardroom as he is on a tractor, Michael can speak with equal insight and expertise about Nikkei averages, emerging technologies and tying flies. He's a Renaissance man with a decidedly forward-thinking philosophy: BVK's success is inseparably linked to the success of its clients. In other words, when Michael leads, good things follow.
