Magee Named as New President of Over The Edge Global
“This process began over 2 years ago,” stated outgoing Founder and President/CEO Paul Griffith. “At that time, we had just finished boosting our front-line staff and were committed to strengthening our middle and senior management team. We have developed some great talent from within our organization and hired some solid professionals from outside. The President’s positon was the last and arguably the most important piece of the organizational chart.”
Mike Magee has been selected by the Board of Advisors search committee as President of Over The Edge Global to assume operational control effective on January 3rd 2017. After an intense search across North America, Mike emerged as the top candidate from over 50 senior skilled professionals in a process that included 3 rounds of interviews over the 4-month process.
Mike joined the OTE family in May of 2015 as Vice President of Client Experience. He brings a wealth of operational and sales experience from his 25-year career. In his earlier days, Mike worked extensively on the mergers and acquisition side of large multi nationals such as Heinz and Pillsbury. In more recent years, he slugged it out in the food service industry as partner and owner/operator of some of the more popular restaurant chains such as Applebee’s and Dairy Queen.
It was his previous experience along with his commitment to our strong value based culture, Maritime work ethic and deep passion for our mission in combination with his vision to not only sustain, but to grow Over The Edge Global that swayed the 4-person section committee.
“Over The Edge is a unique organization. The inspiring staff, our business model and the clients for which we aid in their missions, makes OTE a special place to work. Thanks to Paul and Sue Griffith for their trust in me and the opportunity lead the next chapter of the Over The Edge story.” - Mike Magee
Magee’s challenge will be to build upon the Over The Edge Global success forging ahead in a niche, adventure based, philanthropic market. Mike and his leadership team have a clear path ahead of them as the current goals focus around maintaining our impeccable safety record, delivery of exceptional client service and double digit business growth.
