The REAL DEAL
I worked in the Regional Office in the Sales Effectiveness Department of BC & Yukon Region and for a two year period had the opportunity to work with Mike in his capacity as Associate Vice President (AVP). Mike’s district was one of the top in the Region under his leadership and as a direct result of his capabilities, he maintained a margin of excellence for sales achievement, employee retention and customer satisfaction that was in the top of the entire Region. He is a passionate leader – passionate for his team, client satisfaction, employee satisfaction and overall excellence in operations and administration. Mike was the REAL DEAL. It was an honour supporting his district and continual positive feedback was heard by myself from his leadership team right to the clerical staff in each of his branches. He Was a great asset to the Region and the Bank. I am fully supportive of his pursuit of another career with CIBC in a similar capacity – he would be a great acquisition for CIBC and the Region.
