“Phoenix has been dealing with our clients’ sensitive donor, financial, education and HIPAA data for 13 years now. We have always made the care and security of that data our highest priority. Bringing Mike on board was a natural progression of being self-reliant on such a critical commitment on behalf of our client community. Mike has been the architect of our data security systems working as an external IT partner and now we get 100% of his time, talent and skill, I am very excited to have him on the team,” said Phoenix Innovate CEO, Kirk Vercnocke.
In addition to Mike playing an important role in our client technology and data related solutions, he will be leading our efforts in becoming HITRUST Certified.
When not behind a keyboard, Mike enjoys traveling and camping with his wife and plans to visit every National Park in North America.
