Michael began his headhunting career in 1992 as a recruiter for Sales Consultants of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina, placing professionals nationally. He was a multiple-award winner and became a CSAM (Certified Senior Account Manager) and later a CSM (Certified Senior Manager). In 2001 he relocated to Europe and established MRI Worldwide–Prague, s. r. o., building and managing an award-winning office within Management Recruiters Int'l-Worldwide. In 2006, MRIWW-Prague was awarded the fastest-growing European office.
During his recruiting career Michael has specialized in sales, management and technical positions in a variety of fields, including: medical devices, capital equipment, manufacturing and pharmaceutical markets; thereafter, in fiber–optic and semiconductor market sectors. More recently, he is engaged in general management and professional services, including: legal, finance, banking, tax & audit and human resource sector recruiting. He has assisted people at most professional levels. As a result, Michael has amassed a unique level of expertise that few others can claim, and that insight provides him with diverse, detailed expertise and in–depth knowledge of the job search and interview processes. He understands that recruiting, attracting and representing good professionals is much more than simply CV's, titles, duties and money. Companies hire people and not paper (resumes).
In addition to recruiting, Michael is a lecturer, a published author and an active blogger. He has also written numerous articles.
Prior to his career in sales and recruiting, Michael served for 11 years as a Non–commissioned Officer, U.S. Army Paratrooper, Airborne MP (118th ABN MP Company), Airborne Scout (LRS) and 11th SFG (Reserve). Originally from Cleveland, Ohio and, later, Fort Bragg and Raleigh, North Carolina, Michael is an American of Czech and Slovak heritage.
