It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mike Zawitkowski. I’ve consecutively hired Mike to work at three early-stage companies where I was COO.
One of the best compliments I can give Mike is his unique ability to examine complexity and derive straightforward solutions. He has done as easily with Fortune 500 companies as with pre-product start-ups and he’s applied this skill to issues involving all facets of business.
Mike possesses a wonderful intellectual curiosity for business: figuring out how things work, asking the “right” questions, using judgment to define what is most important, and clearly keeping the goal to implement solutions that make things work better. He helps to prioritize work in ways that appreciably move companies forward. Mike pairs his curiosity with an unusually broad and deep skill set that touches most aspects of business on a global scale.
Again, it is my pleasure to recommend Mike Zawitkowski to solve the most complex problems in your business.

Mike has designed data sets that fuel both near-term and long-term business strategies. Mike can handle literally anything thrown at him; the bigger the challenge, the more his eyes light up! I appreciate that he never hesitates to challenge anyone or any idea, and pushes the team to listen to data and user behavior over personal biases. Beneath all the brains is an extraordinary human being that’s a consummate team player and a joy to work alongside every day.

Mike has an amazing ability to simplify complex problems into their core elements and address the root cause of challenges rather than the apparent symptoms. He can turn scattered thoughts into discernable action plans and can make sense of even the most complicated mess of priorities. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Mike again...

Mike Zawitkowski is an outstanding person. He really knows how to take care of business. I'm particularly impressed by the way he follows up on my questions, no matter how obscure. I'm sure he's busier than anything, but he makes me feel like I'm his only client. The dude is organized. And smart. And nice. Do whatever you can to keep him around.

Mike is one of those amazingly positive people you can't believe exists. He's happy, positive, generous, helpful, smart, and most of all ultra-capable. He has the calm, never-frazzled, 1-step-at-time approach of a war-hardened combat surgeon and he's happy to take the time to help you be as cool as he is. On top of that, he's filled with a love for life, science and music. I hope I have the chance to work with him again.
