“Michael passed away after a short but strong battle against his illness. Despite his illness, he mustered all his energies to continue working as a consultant to us, focusing on the future with such strength and anticipation. A true gentleman of the ‘old-school,’ he will also be remembered for his cheerful personality and his optimism, that not only taught us courage but also to always remember that his glass was always ‘half full.’ He was our colleague, mentor and our friend. We feel privileged to have known him and he will be deeply missed.”
