Doug Creeley Mentor, SCORE, LinkedIn profile

I have had the pleasure of working with a great team while at Ambassadors. Michael is chiefly responsible for cobbling together that team. Michael has several characteristics that enable him to craft exceptional teams; thorough understanding of business needs, keen perception and tenacity.

Conversations with Michael about resource requests and utilization often bogged down into technical details but being acute he was able to glean critical aspects from the exchange to build a robust dossier. Michael brought numerous resources to our group that delivered at a high level. I enjoyed relying on Michael to source open positions in an exacting precise fashion.

Michael’s insight and vision into candidates is amazing, picking up on hints of greatness or evidence of weakness. His ability to winnow the applicants down to the key candidates by knowing our expectations afforded me and others more productive time due to limited distractions in interviewing.

By far Michael’s best attribute is his tenacity. Michael approaches each opportunity in a manner of utmost professionalism and fervent zeal. His drive to deliver is only matched by his pleasant demeanor. Learning to count on Michael was easy as he accomplished each assignment with overwhelming success.

I look forward to working with Michael again in the future. His multi-discipline sourcing capabilities engender success in the short and long term.

My first experience with Mike was during the recruiting process with People to People Ambassador's programs. From the get go, Mike was on task, prompt to respond to my questions, and very professional. Mike was very helpful during my onboarding and really was an outstanding "Ambassador" for People to People.

After I was hired, it was a pleasure continuing to work with Mike as he was always available to assist with other H.R. matters and was very in tune to employee concerns as well as what the market place was doing.

Put all the business stuff aside, Mike is just simply a great guy. Very personable and just a pleasure to work with.

Would be happy to serve as a reference for Mike anytime!
