Getting to Know iSalus: Michael Hall, President

Becoming a true partner to clients who are located across the entire United States can sometimes prove to be difficult.  While we continue to collaborate with you in every way possible, we thought it would be helpful to give you an inside look at the iSalus team.  Welcome to our new series, “Getting to Know iSalus.”  Once a month you’ll be introduced to a new member of the iSalus team who will give you a glimpse inside their life, daily activities, biggest challenges and even a few of their dreams.  To kick off this new series, our fearless leader, Michael Hall, President of iSalus, has graciously taken the time to answer a few questions and be our first featured team member.  Hope you enjoy!

While everyone at iSalus knows that Mike loves to hear the word “Yes” there were a few surprises in his answers.  Who knew he had the desire to sing?  Maybe there will a karaoke rendition of “Jump,” “Bust a Move,” or “Pour Some Sugar on Me” at the next company outing?  Here’s to hoping!  Whatever the future holds, thanks Mike for being not only willing, but eager to participate.
