As Mid Atlantic DVP, Mike will oversee all Humanitarian Services activities for six states (South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania), and the District of Columbia.
Mike is a strong leader with proven skills in overseeing complex projects and managing change. He joined the Red Cross in mid-2014 as the Blood Services Region CEO for the Northern Ohio and Western Lake Erie Regions. He served as blood region CEO for a year before moving to the Division COO position for the Crossroads Division under DVP Sue Richter. In that capacity, Mike oversaw national fleet, real estate and volunteer services strategies for Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia. Mike launched a successful fleet integration pilot for Ohio,
resulting in savings of $225,000 in annual operations expenses, and followed this by stewarding our enterprise strategy to manage regional fleet operations. He also led the warehouse project team to standardize inventory and optimize storage footprint throughout the U.S., and exercised oversight of the Crossroads strategy to optimize its real estate footprint.
Before joining the American Red Cross, Mike spent seven years at the highly-respected Cleveland Clinic, rising to the position of Department Administrator, overseeing the sales,
marketing, logistics and client services for their Reference Laboratory. In that position, he managed $54M in revenue, an increase of 25 percent in three years. He holds a
Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Cincinnati.
I firmly believe that Mike is well positioned for success as the new DVP of the Mid Atlantic Division, due in no small measure to the groundbreaking work of Joe Becker.
Please join me in congratulating Mike on his new responsibilities, and, if you haven’t already, in thanking Joe for his many years of lasting service to the Red Cross.
