Mike founded MR Associates Inc. in 1973. Utilizing his background in graphics design, copy-writing and print production, he built the agency to the successful family-owned and operated business it is today. The success of the agency was established on Mike’s focus on technology and the medical industry. He believed there would always be a need for technological advancements in any industry, so he made a conscious decision to build a tech-savvy client list.
Mike currently serves as former President, but continues to be actively involved in the decision making and creative process of the company.

Together they built their clientele in the up-and-coming technology industry, working with top names like Hewlett Packard. Later, as V.P. Account Executive, Steve was in charge of new business development, focusing on high-tech companies in the microwave communication and radio frequency industries.
