Headshot of Mike Riffel.

While I live in Massachusetts now, I grew up in Michigan where I used to play saxophone and sing in a Polka band.

I work with our team helping governments around the United States modernize their technology. We’re industry leaders in learning about our clients’ situations, understanding their technology vision, and representing their best interests so they can achieve their individual and organizational strategic goals. 

My clients know I invest the time to understand their unique working environment. In general, our specific projects are usually one of many initiatives that our local government clients are undertaking. What strengthens our relationships is our ability to convey that we understand their challenges and that we’re here to help.

With more than 15 years of professional experience, I believe my greatest accomplishment is my family. Everything I’ve accomplished professionally I owe to the support of my family at home.

I’m a member of the Government Finance Officers Association, Illinois Government Finance Officers Association, New York Government Finance Officers Association, International City/County Management Association, and the Public Technology Institute. I earned a B.A. in international relations and an M.S. in public policy and administration from Michigan State University. I’m a certified government chief information officer through Rutgers University’s School of Public Affairs and Administration.

In my free time, I enjoy college football tailgating at Boston College with friends and family.
