Mike Schwenk has more than 35 years of technical and management experience in government, non-profit, small business, and corporate settings.  He has managed award winning technology commercialization and economic development activities.

Mike has a long history of public voluntary, appointed and elected involvement.  From a school board, to governor appointed agency boards, to non-profit boards, he has developed a set of communication and interpersonal skills that have almost always elevated him to the chair position.  Special recognition for this service came in 2008 when he was named Tri-Citian of the Year by his community.

Today Mike serves on a number of state boards and as an executive advisor and coach to leaders who are looking to “do different”.  He is fond of saying that one of his greatest attributes is the ability to be an empathetic listener.  When coupled with observation, it is Mike’s intent to bring a fresh set of eyes and ears to those leaders and organizations who desire some “possibility thinking”, candid feedback, and encouragement to achieve greater impact.

Mike and his wife, Sharon, have been married for 38 years. They have a son and daughter, both married, and each couple has blessed them with a grandson.  Though family is always first, golf, guitar, community and good times with friends follow closely.
