Mike was a practicing CPA for 27 years before he joined forces with M&A.  Mike and M&A founder Katrina Loftin, found a mutual admiration for closing deals as they worked together assisting with purchase price allocations, and tax planning regarding buying and selling businesses.

Mike’s focus is assisting sellers to get ready to sell their business, which he finds is as mental as it is tactical.  Mike has consulted on hundreds of business buy/sells transactions as a practicing CPA, and is eager to help sellers maximize their exit from the business, as well as assist with the orderly transition of the business to the new owners.

Over the years, Mike has worked for various firms of all shapes and sizes, including CliftonLarsonAllen (Principal in Charge), Bosma Group CPAs (Managing Shareholder), Grant Thorton LLP (Senior Manager), and Deloitte (Tax Associate).

He achieved many things throughout his tenor including record sales and profits (while integrating into the 8th largest firm in the nation), recognition as the top professional services organization by NCET, Entrepreneur of the Year, establishing successful industry specific practices and lastly hosts a successful weekly radio show Bosma on Business.

His technical experience includes:
