For the past 15 years, he has focused on helping small business Owners solve their most difficult organizational challenges.
TouchPoint specializes in helping organizations plan and execute major transitions: completing an ‘extreme makeover’ of their operations, changing their business model, creating a strategic plan, a turnaround or major restructuring, spinning off or launching a new business unit, securing new financing, succession planning, and preparing for the future exit of the Founder or Owner.
Over 30+ years, Michael has gained extensive experience in all aspects of running and growing a business, while serving as CEO, President, COO, CFO, and Corporate Director, as well as on advisory boards for privately held companies, industry groups, non-profits, and educational institutions. His experience includes companies ranging from startups to global brands in business services, wholesale distribution, non-profits, banking, energy, communications, retail, public relations, real estate, and more.
Michael earned his BS in Finance and MBA at the University of Southern California (USC). He has extensive international experience, is a published author, a guest lecturer in college-level business courses, and has led the purchase and/or sale of seven companies to date. Michael is passionate about privately held businesses, and has a proven track record helping entrepreneurs and business owners define and achieve success.
How Dependent is Your Business on You?
Michael is also the author and co-creator of the Owner Dependence IndexTM, a web-based tool that measures eight critical aspects of any business, and assesses the level of Owner Dependence in each. It consists of 40 questions, and requires just 10-15 minutes to complete. A customized report based on your responses is provided immediately, via email.
Why should a Business Owner or executive be concerned with the level of Owner Dependence in their business? In addition to providing more time to be with family or pursue new business opportunities, a lower level of Owner Dependence may ultimately:
- Reduce business risk
- Unleash growth potential
- Provide more flexibility to choose your level of involvement in the business
- Provide more future exit options
- Increase marketability
- Increase enterprise value
