Mike started Crown in 2015 after recognizing the number of companies that needed an experienced financial advisor but did not have the budget or need to hire a permanent full time CFO. It was apparent that every business could benefit from financial leadership to successfully expand in the right direction.

Crown CFO has since flourished and in 2021, was named one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Kansas City.

Mike is involved in the Kansas City community and currently volunteers through Blue Valley Recreation. He enjoys spending time with his family, exploring Kansas City and playing the guitar.
