Born and raised in Massachusetts, Mike has lived in sunny South Florida for 12 years (though he prides himself on maintaining New England sports team tendencies). He began his career with Darden Restaurants, serving as part of the development team for their Bahama Breeze brand. After ten years as a General Manager and Director, Mike opened his own successful restaurant in South Florida.
Mike spent five years consulting with various businesses across the hospitality and F&B industries before taking on the role of COO for Hemsworth, a company founded with his wife Samantha in 2014. He oversees finance, administration and human resources. He is also spearheading the company’s corporate development and growth plans, and championing unique cultural initiatives to attract the best talent across the travel/tourism PR industry.
