Michael has over 30 years’ experience leading, developing and deploying leading-edge technology applications as well as a broad knowledge of the strategic and operational challenges involved in building technology companies. Michael founded iasset.com with Scott Frew while he was CIO of Distribution Central and concurrently held both roles for 5 years. During his 10-year tenure at Distribution Central, he was instrumental in building the company’s core channel management portals as well as its suite of SaaS tools that underpinned the company’s value offerings including iasset.com. His expertise in channel services has been central to the ongoing development of iasset.com and its channel management solutions. Before joining Distribution Central, Michael launched his own company, Aztech Information Systems, in Ireland and grew it into a thriving business. At an early stage, Michael made the decision to keep the company as a niche player within the financial services sector – and in doing so, developed a profitable business with a blue-chip client base.
