My company partnered with Michael at both Sapient and Endeca. In the recruiting and human resources fields, Michael is a rare visionary with a real passion for his work. For all the lipservice recruiting gets, the function is too often relegated to a business service and a cost center. Michael views recruiting as talent acquisition and human resources as human capital management. He understands that both are the lifeblood of business. In addition to being a pragmatic problem solver, Michael is an enthusiastic, engaging, and charismatic leader, one of the few 'executives' I have met in our industry that merit the title.
