Mike Molino

Almost a full year after announcing he was stepping down as president and CEO of the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), Mike Molino has launched a new venture.

A year ago Molino said he planned to be active in a different type of work. He is now doing just that. His new position is president at Mike Molino LLC, a firm for association and business consulting, according to a news release.

Molino explains, “With over 40 years in the roles of CEO, COO, planner, instructor, facilitator and human resources staffer, I believe I have the breadth of experience and the communication skills to help executives and managers refine their own strategic planning, leadership, and management skills. My new mission is not very different from the mission I followed in military service and at RVDA: To use my broad range of success and experience to help CEOs, executives, and managers shape their future, become better leaders, solve problems, improve teamwork, and achieve their vision.”

Molino will assist clients from both the not-for-profit worlds of associations and government agencies, as well as the for-profit world of small business, especially those blending family members into their staffs.

With a solid grounding in business, liberal arts and the military arenas, he brings valuable experience necessary for relating to individuals or groups needing to enhance their leadership skills and abilities. He is a Certified Association Executive, is certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and has extensively used the DISC and the Caliper Assessment.

In addition to creating and executing strategic planning strategies for more than 25 years as a CEO or COO, Molino is prepared to facilitate strategic planning sessions for both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. It’s his desire to bring increase effectiveness, efficiency and team cohesiveness so clients can move forward on a productive path.

A year ago Molino said, “It is time for someone with new energy and ideas to head the staff of RVDA.” Now he adds, “It is equally exciting to offer my experience to other organizations, helping them gain new energy and ideas. For more information about Mike Molino, visit www.MikeMolinoLLC.com.
