Mike majored in broadcast journalism at Appalachian State University. While there, he visited a Vanguard booth at the campus career fair and was extremely impressed by the people and what Vanguard had to offer. Later, a recruiter called him to discuss not only what he could do for Vanguard, but what the company could do for him—and he was sold.
Mike generally arrives to the Vanguard office by 7:15 AM. He splits his time 50/50 between current and potential crew members. From finding and hiring talent, to promoting Vanguard University training and offering continuous career support, Michael works to create a top-notch people program at Vanguard.
