“Nothing can take the place of experience and persistence”.
Michael began his career in New York City with CBS, Inc. eventually moving on to American Express. He learned the skills and methodology of handling structured finance, the required components for successful buying and selling of economic assets and the essential leadership skills for executive team building. He then went on to establish a licensed commercial real estate and registered SEC Boutique Investment firm in the greater Boston area.
For twelve years he was Chairman, Founder and CEO of Wax & Company, Inc and Avatar Securities exclusively serving the middle market business community. The company successfully completed commercial real estate and business purchases and sales for an array of domestic and international clients. Services primarily included sales, purchases, and lease negotiations. Transactions were in numerous industries including both private and small public companies.
Achieving the best results for the client is an objective best obtained by utilizing a team of advisors in the transactional process. Trusted advisors such as the client’s attorneys and accountants are included in the team and contribute their expertise insuring a positive outcome.
Living in Oregon with his family since 1995, Michael has been the CEO of two health care technologies companies each divested to corporate buyers. In late 2016, he moved to Eugene to apply his transactional expertise focusing on Oregon and the entire Northwest.
