Mike has over 15 years of engineering experience as part of the defense industrial base. His broad project experience includes modeling & simulation, development & deployment of advanced sensors, tracking, command & control, and fire control. He has domain experience in ISR, border and critical infrastructure security, force protection, counter rocket, artillery, mortar (C-RAM), counter UAS (C-UAS), and Advanced Teaming. His experiences stretch from operations analysis, through integration & test, to operations and sustainment.

Mike’s leadership experience began with being principal investigator for small R&D projects for a large DoD prime. There, he was exposed to the process of managing large investment portfolios. These projects turned into products, where he led integration & test teams, deploying these systems into the field. As a Lead Systems Engineer, he led a large team to rapidly develop, build, deploy, and upgrade (software & hardware) systems for the United States military.

Prior to joining Albers, he took a short “sabbatical” from defense, leading the development of a portfolio of web / mobile applications, leveraging the very latest technology and development processes from Silicon Valley.

Mike graduated with a BS in Computer Science from Texas A&M and a Master’s in Systems Engineering Management from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
