Mike founded Development Concepts, Inc. in 1991 after serving as Director of the Department of Metropolitan Development in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is a nationally recognized expert in public-private partnerships and development implementation. Mike’s work at the City of Indianapolis led to significant strides in the revitalization of Downtown Indianapolis. In 2003, he began a comprehensive neighborhood development initiative called Martindale on the Monon, located northeast of downtown Indianapolis. Since then, significant progress has been made in this once distressed neighborhood, including the construction of nearly 40 new mixed-income homes and the development of a new charter school.
