Michael brings another 30+ years of broad planning and permitting services to our team.
Michael has served as a planning director, planning manager, development services director, executive director, among other titles. Michael knows planning! But he also knows development and private business, too.
While serving as the Executive Director of the Pawtucket Redevelopment Authority, Michael was instrumental in helping to secure funding for the start-up company. After reviewing and commenting on their business plan and getting the approval of the Redevelopment agency, Michael worked directly with the company owner in meetings with the state’s Economic Development staff and the Governor’s office.
Michael brings the rare life experience of having been on both sides of the permit counter.
Outside of planning, Michael has a passion for wines. He has a side business where he manages wine events and promotions. He is also the agent for several Washington wineries. It is our privilege to have Michael on staff, and boy has our wine knowledge grown!
