The 2019 Pythons
Founder ML6 Search + Talent Advisory
Michael founded ML6 Search + Talent Advisory in 2017 after a successful corporate career which saw him building and leading high-performance teams across a multitude of functions and industries. Throughout his experiences, one constant is his ability to identify and nurture key talent, taking teams and businesses to the next level. In his most recent role, he led the Human Resources function for a private equity-backed healthcare services provider, and helped grow them from 30 to over 200 locations across Canada. Michael has a B. Comm from the University of South Africa specialising in Management, and spent the early part of his career in sales and business development.
While you may often hear him reminiscing about the weekends spent climbing, braaiing, and eating biltong in the mountains of South Africa, he has called Canada home since March 2008, and takes full advantage of all this beautiful country has to offer. His down time is spent training for his next marathon or enjoying a climb at the local climbing gym. Michael lives in Burlington with his wife, four active children, and Australian Shepherd, Kensi.
