Michael is ThinkGard’s Director of Technology Services. He is responsible for running Operations, which includes onboarding all of our new clients as well as the Support team, which handles the day-to-day support for our clients.
He joined ThinkGard in 2017 with over 20 years of both private and public sector experience. Prior to joining ThinkGard, he spent 11 years at a small central Alabama municipality as the Director of Information Technology. In 2011, after devastating tornadoes tracked less than 2 miles from his City Hall, he recognized the need for the city to implement what he calls a “proper disaster recovery plan”. After meeting ThinkGard’s CEO Paul Franks and CTO Kevin Fuller at a technology conference in 2012 Michael was convinced that ThinkGard’s complete business continuity and disaster recovery solution was “beyond proper”.
Michael enjoys reading, live music, New Orleans Saints football, Atlanta Braves baseball and playing an occasional video game or two. He and his wife, Julie, live in Northport, Alabama with their two kids and two dogs.
