Mike LaRhette

President

Mike leads on partnerships and people. He has worked for both early stage startups and established organizations in the design and facilitation of business strategy, sales and marketing effectiveness, client engagement, communications, and leadership development. Yep - he’s just about done it all!

A champion of MassChallenge since its inception, Mike has been a trusted advisor and facilitator of strategic growth. Prior to MassChallenge, he held senior roles at AchieveGlobal, Personnel Decisions International, and Sapient Corporation. He has also helped to organize TEDxBoston since 2012.

Mike has a dual undergraduate degree in psychology and economics from Boston College, and a master’s in education (Ed.M) from Boston University. Outside of MassChallenge, he loves nothing more than being on a sports field on the south shore with his wife, children, and his dog.
