A people-centric individual, Mike is inspired with a deep commitment toward collaboration and team success. With a uniquely vivid imagination and equally quick wit that’s reinforced by an unparalleled level of passion and creativity in his work, Mike manages the business development activities for Pie’s building science group. In this capacity, Mike oversees proposal development, analyzes emerging market opportunities, recommends strategy, advises in Pie’s corporate branding efforts, and keeps his engineer colleagues just slightly off-balance.

Mike is a registered Landscape Architect whose former experience ranged from regional master planning to site-specific design projects. From 1983 to 2009, he worked for a number of well-known companies in key leadership positions and established his own company, Ermisch Associates.

Prior to joining Pie, Mike worked for a global engineering firm as a Senior Associate responsible for establishing a Colorado presence in planning and landscape architecture. A noted speaker and author, Mike has published several professional articles and has spoken across the U.S. and Canada on various business specific and motivational topics.
