Mike Porter

Chief Sales Officer at NAVEX Global


Porter is a high-performing sales executive who brings 20 years of experience helping tech companies reach sustainable success. He spent 13 years at Microsoft during the early part of his career, where he held a number of leadership roles, culminating in him being selected to lead what was at the time a newly created organization dedicated to the company’s corporate customers. He calls himself a “lifelong learner that thrives in changing environments,” and he brings that attitude to his work, personal life, and philanthropic efforts, like mentoring at business incubator 1871. “Mike is a great leader and a great teacher,” a colleague who worked with Porter said. “It’s hard enough to be great at one of those, never mind both, but Mike excels equally in the business and people dimensions of the complex sales and business leadership roles he’s taken on.”
