Michael, along with his wife and partner Toni, ran a multi-million dollar marketing and advertising agency for 27 years at which they reinvented client business after client business…and then…they took on reinventing themselves.
In 2013 they sold their agency and one year later they opened the doors to North America’s first plant-based butcher shop – YamChops. (Oxymoron intended!) Lauded worldwide with hundreds upon hundreds of acknowledgements and media features, YamChops created not only a new business model, but also a new business category – vegan butchery.
In September of 2018 they sold YamChops. In just a few short months, realizing that they were clearly not ready to live the “quiet life”, they began a coaching and consultancy agency for a small group of select clients. SixCob primarily serves producers and manufacturers with go-to-market and in-market strategies designed to produce results. Toni specializes in the “sales” and service training side and Michael in the marketing and food side.
