Mike Martin

Director of Consulting & Contract Management

Banking is a very relationship-based industry, and you need to make sure that you are taking care of your clients. Doing the right thing in every project goes a long way and will be remembered/discussed for years to come.

OVERVIEW

Mike joined Eide Bailly in the fall of 2019 and brings many years of financial industry experience with him. He is the Director of Consulting and Contract Management and works primarily in the financial industry, providing technology review, analysis and contract negotiation services. Mike has extensive experience working with banks and credit unions ranging in size from de novo to multi-billion in assets.

When Mike works with a client on a full technology evaluation or a product replacement project, his knowledge and enthusiasm brings extra aspects to the client. He is able to communicate consistently and accurately, all while educating the client on current and emerging trends in the financial institution market. Mike strives to work strategically with clients to maximize the value of their technology partner relationships.

When he’s not in the office or traveling for work, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons and their black lab. When the weather is nice (and sometimes not so nice), he enjoys the outdoors while golfing, hunting, fishing or playing sports with his kids!
