Board Member: 2021-2022
Mike moved back to North Carolina with his family 4 years ago. Mike is a father of five children. His youngest daughter, Elle, attends UA. Mike and his wife Cyndy owned and operated Champagne Manor, a wedding venue located in New Salem. After growing and solidifying that business, they sold it and have purchased a farm in Waxhaw.
Mike is retired from a 28-year career in Facilities Management, during which he co-founded two of the largest companies in the industry. His career path allowed him to participate in countless interdisciplinary committees serving both commercial and educational environments.
Mike served our country as a Marine, spending most of that time in Counter Intelligence. He also holds a degree in business from American Intercontinental University.
We have been amazed by the level of attention given by the UA team to build character and focus on achieving academic excellence. I want to make sure that every student has the opportunity to develop their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical capabilities.
