Mike has been serving clients in the financial services industry since 1985, spending his career interfacing with Community Bank boards and their shareholders.  He brings over three decades of experience helping Community Banks in the daily distribution of their shares on the OTC Markets and other exchanges. He has a primary focus on accumulating shares of select Community Bank stocks for individual shareholders and investors as well as current (or former) directors of Community Banks.

Prior to joining D.A. Davidson, Mike was with FIG Partners LLC, who he joined in 2014.  He began his career in Jacksonville with Blackstock and Company, transitioning to Raymond James in 1986 where he began to focus on community bank stocks.  In 1987, looking to further deepen his commitment to Community Banks, Mike joined Williams Securities Group, a Florida-based investment bank and NASDAQ market maker focused on community bank stocks. Following a buyout of the firm by R.W. Baird in 1991, Mike continued to focus on the Community Bank space at Baird with an emphasis on getting banks traded on the OTC Markets. In 1998 he joined Advest, Inc., where he began editing and distributing a monthly newsletter called the “Florida Bank Stock Review” – a piece he continued to distribute until 2011.  He returned to Raymond James from 2006 to 2014, following his Advest investment banking team.
