In advertising, we’re always talking about opportunities. And Mike has made his reputation hunting them down, both big and small. No surprise there, a native Philadelphian, he’s got the grit and hustle of that city in his veins. “Nothing’s a given in this business, and if you want something, you have to go after it,” says Mike.
After getting his start in his hometown at Red Tettemer, he made his way to New York, working at shops like Taxi, Ogilvy, and Brooklyn Brothers before landing at Saatchi, where he helped win and led the Walmart account as ECD. “Working on the world’s biggest brand, Walmart, you don’t get much bigger opportunities than that.” says Mike. “There is so much possibility in NYC. It’s all about the work, and putting in the work, to make great things happen for McKinney NY.”
