It’s a win-win situation for businesses and free agents. Think of us as your own talent pool of individuals and project teams, available now to help you.

Upon return to his hometown in Halifax, Mike applied his skills to clients Labatt, Atlantic Lottery, Bell/Aliant and Sobeys at CCL (now Colour), prior to taking his skills to an IT ‘start up’ (CrossOff Incorporated) that acquired 16 companies over a three year span.

Five years ago, he got involved in another start up. Safe Harbour Security, that he helped build into a national brand, and he is now dreaming big with this company, Free Agent Factory.
