Born and raised in Carmel, Mike is a 5th generation California Central Coast-resident. He graduated from Chico State, majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis on Financial Management. After working in cost accounting for the State of California and then for a custom grower in Salinas, he joined Ippolito in 2011. With the creation of Queen Victoria Farms he began managing all general accounting functions for growing and harvesting. As the Ranch Account Manager he oversees government compliance & regulatory issues, equipment purchasing and financial negotiations. Mikes appreciates Ippolito for its family-oriented focus, and that he can go straight to the owner rather than all the layers typically found in a company as large as Ippolito. He also loves working in the produce industry: along with working with great people, Mike thinks it’s amazing to travel and see Salinas-grown produce on store shelves all over the world. In addition to spending his free time with his family, which includes his wife, son and a dog, Mike enjoys carpentry, hiking and fishing.
