Mike has worked in all areas of banking from the teller line to Information Technology and at banks both small and gigantic. He is currently a Senior Vice President and Senior Director of the Project Management Office at the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, uses accounting software daily and is very comfortable working with auditing and accounting firms large and small.
