Head of Products

A results-driven leader with over 15 years of experience in avionics and healthcare, Mike has provided technical and program leadership on small- to large-scale development and test avionics programs across numerous functional areas such as displays, cabin entertainment, flight management, braking and flight controls. He has also provided technical and program leadership on multiple healthcare programs in the computed tomography and ultrasound modalities. Mike is currently responsible for overseeing the growth of Performance’s suite of products. This includes Precision Navigation & Mapping™, Performance Data Loader™, Connected Aircraft Solutions, and Product Development projects.

His origin story with Performance is similar to many executives on the team: he was introduced to the company by a colleague and found a kindred spirit in Tim Bigelow, the company’s Founder. Mike was impressed by Performance and Tim’s vision, and was excited to become part of a small company with high growth aspirations and a focus on providing the highest value to customers where he could be an integral part of a team defining new technologies and products.

Mike is an alum of the University of Northern Iowa and holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
