ConSept Founder & CEO
Michael has been in the 20 Group and automotive training business for more than 35 years. Michael was the founder and CEO of two very successful 20 Group companies, Performance Incorporated and ConSept. ConSept, which was purchased by NCM in April 2018, was the largest provider of 20 Groups in Canada. This acquisition now makes NCM the largest 20 Group provider in North America, with more than 450 20 Groups.
In addition, Michael founded and managed several OEM-sponsored programs such as the General Motors Service Consulting College, General Motors Holdings, Ford Dealer Development, Chrysler Marketing Investment 20 Groups, and Chrysler's New Dealer Program. ConSept's district sales and service manager training groups have also been widely adapted by OEMs such as Chrysler, General Motors, and Hyundai Canada.
Michael is committed to leveraging his strong 20 Group automotive consulting background to provide bottom-line results and innovative solutions for NCM's entire client family as an advisor.
Michael is a graduate of the University of Maryland where he received his bachelor's and master's degrees in business administration at the Robert H. Smith School of Business. He and his wife live in White Stone, Va., where they enjoy gourmet cooking, spending time on the Chesapeake Bay, and spoiling their three dogs. Michael has three sons and one granddaughter.
