The son of a man who worked for four decades at NASA, Michael is no stranger to innovation and discovery. No doubt his childhood prepared him well for the 29 years he has now dedicated to the data and telecommunications fields. Michael joined DCS in 2009 as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, moving up to Chief Operating Officer two years later, with responsibility for directing all corporate activities in support of the company’s policies and objectives. He came to DCS from the largest electric supply distributor in the world, Rexel, Inc, where he directed datacom sales nationally. His career began in Dallas as branch manager for Litecomm Supply. Eight years later, he formed Orbis Networks, a placement firm that provided managed services personnel to Fortune 100 companies. Michael’s next venture was Pinnacle Supply, a start-up focused on network-type premise sales for both the end-user and contractor markets. A graduate of Abilene Christian University, he has been blessed with a marriage of 30 years and four daughters.
