A 1976 graduate of Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, Mike began his career during his junior year with a sales internship at the Vicks Chemical Company, a leading health and beauty aid manufacturer.

In 1980, Quinn joined Pankow Associates as a Cleveland Sales Representative. He has been honored as the Pankow Sales Representative of the Year several times over the years, and recognized by many of our manufacturers for his performance on their product lines. Michael was promoted to Field Sales Manager in 1987, and subsequently Regional Vice President.
