Mike joined The Hollister Group, Inc. in 2013 and began leading the Administrative & HR team in 2017. He previously owned and operated a retail business with his family and eventually transitioned into College Admissions before landing at Hollister as a Recruiter. Mike preaches and practices a consultative approach when it comes to recruiting and business development. He believes every interaction is an opportunity to build a new relationship, and prides himself on being direct and transparent about how to best help clients and job seekers. Mike loves working at Hollister because he has always been encouraged to be himself and to approach work with a sense of humor.
Outside of work, Mike loves to travel – his favorite trip was to Switzerland. He loves seeing live music and, in the last couple of years, he taught himself how to play guitar. He also loves sharing pictures of his two dogs (Bodie & Bonnie) with his team weekly!
Mike’s advice to talent is to research a company before you apply and to leverage that research in your interviews to indicate that you came prepared. He encourages authentic conversations during interviews. Mike also advises talent to advocate for yourself and to be confident but also reasonable when negotiating an offer.
