As someone who reported to Michael on a large number of projects, I found that he management style fantastic and his knowledge of IT system limitless. His management style was open to receptive to ideas and thoughts of the team while also directing the team to achieve the goals of upper management. During the time that I worked with him at State Street, I used him as my primary resource for any of the technologies that I was working with at the time.
UNIX, Active Directory, LDAP, or any in-house developed system, nothing seemed to be out of reach of his knowledge. In the off chance that he wasn’t sure of the answer, he would research the answer and get back to me in a short amount of time (no more than an hour at most). His technical and management abilities are a great asset to any company or client that he works with.
