Michael W. Kerby

Following graduation from Florida State University with a BA in Accounting, Michael began his career at world-wide known Morrison Knudsen Corporation. Michael became the youngest Senior Project Accountant in the company following the completion of a $2.6 billion Federal Highway project in Hawaii. This position offered Michael the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of international finance matters and cultural business practices and protocols.

Taking that experience and knowledge with him, Michael joined Micron Technology as Finance Manager. This position afforded him the experience of directing financial services for the largest private construction project nationwide at the time, a $2.2 billion microchip facility which employed 6,000 men and women and boasted an aggressive 1-year timeline. Under Michaelís leadership, Micron consistently performed under budget and exceeded all financial goals.

In 1996, Michael joined Robison Construction Group as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer. Michaelís widespread knowledge of the construction industry, coupled with his expertise in finance, assisted him in successfully charting the companyís 733% growth over 9 years, reaching a peak of $425 million in annual completed projects, with over 1,000 employees in three states, including the Hawaiian Islands. Michaelís construction-related background assisted him in procuring business opportunities for the company. During that period, he formed new relationships with two of the largest developers in the Northwest, resulting in RCI becoming their preferred contractor and bringing in over $30 million in new projects.

Michaelís interest and study of Mergers and Acquisitions was utilized during the purchase of several companies, and most notably, the sale of RCI to Parsons. From the initial negotiations through the completion of the purchase and sale agreement, Michaelís knowledge of the Corporate Merger and Acquisition process carried the offer through its successful completion.

As a result of his financial-based construction experience, Michael developed a keen eye for development projects with great potential and in 2005 partnered with Mark Robison to create HMI and has invested over $220 million in real estate development, business acquisitions and equity markets.
