Michael Perkins

Marketing Consultant

Michael entered the workforce at just 10 years old, working at his father’s tavern to earn money over the summer. He continued working there, off and on until he was 27. So it makes sense that he has a strong work ethic and that he originally went to college to be a chef. But somewhere along the line, that plan took a detour and he landed in sales and management (yay for us!), which is where he excels.
