I’m Mike Marino. 


After being a CEO and advising them for more than three

decades, I now work as a confidential advisor to Chief

Executives and other senior leaders to help you set a path

to success.


Through my work, I’ve learned how important it is to create a

healthy, high-performance work culture in order to meet the challenges created by changing customer needs, government regulation, technological advances, and global market dynamics. And I understand the clear role leaders play in establishing such a culture.

I was an early pioneer in the field of organizational development and culture-shaping and have spent my career helping leaders think through and master the challenges of leadership, culture, and performance.

As a Partner in and then CEO of Senn Delaney*, I advised C-level executives on a range of culture initiatives. I led strategic accounts in global and Fortune 500 companies across a wide range of industries, including transportation, retail, pharmaceuticals, insurance, and financial services. 

Into all, I integrated my understanding of how culture works in concert with business strategy and operations to drive sustainable performance.Results followed: more satisfying work environments, higher employee engagement and retention, and greater revenue and profitability.

In addition to being a CEO, I’ve led significant businesses in senior roles, consistently delivering robust growth through collaboration and perseverance. Click here to see my resume.


I learned long ago that leaders need to have rich lives outside of work, and I walk my talk. I lead an Americana swing band known as the Howlers; am an active member of the yoga community; march in a Mardi Gras dance group, the Amelia Earhawt’s; and support the New Orleans Musicians Clinic that provides health care to musicians in that city.
