Under his management and guidance, I was often able to learn new skills and participate in larger projects outside of the scope of my job description, which I welcomed at every chance. The rare mix of productive management and ambition sets a great example for the rest of the team and explains why everyone loves working with Mike -- no matter where they fall on the org chart.
