Mike CEO Flywheel

Michael Steele

CEO

As the CEO, my job is to set the vision & strategy, then make sure everyone else has what they need to execute. Right now, that’s a combination of account strategy, project management, HR, and sales.

I started Flywheel on the side while teaching digital marketing at a local tech school, after hearing from students and partners how much of a need there was a need for a more technical, transparent approach to digital marketing. Flywheel quickly became my focus as we grew. Before that, I founded The Good Stuff (eCommerce) and worked for a SaaS startup while living in San Francisco.

For Fun: I obsessively play & watch basketball, play Switch, and read!
