Ep. 89: Dick Vitale and Jim Valvano shaped this business icon. Michael spent 33 years climbing the ladder at Xerox before OfficeMax hired him as Executive Vice President where he led a $3.6 billion dollar division.  In 2012, he was named Chairman and CEO of the nutrition and weight loss company, Medifast. Under his leadership, Medifast's stock rose from $4 to $218 per share.

I knew Michael would be the perfect guest after reading his book From the Bench to the Boardroom. In the promotions for the book, Duke’s Coach Mike Krzyzewski described him as persistent and determined even in his current role as a board member of the V Foundation.
