After graduating from the University of Tennessee in 1980, Mike Todd spent over 38 years in the "Point-of-Sale" industry as an executive leader for firms such as NCR, Agilysys, PAR Technology and Global Payments. Most of Mike’s corporate career focused on driving revenue growth and leading sales organizations, but also included roles as President and CEO. A native of East Tennessee, Mike met his bride (Laura) while living in Western North Carolina before moving back to Knoxville in 1987. Mike has a passion for serving Christ through serving others, particularly underprivileged youth in our urban communities where he mentors and coaches basketball at Emerald Youth Foundation. Mike and Laura love East Tennessee and all of it’s natural beauty while passionately following the Tennessee Vols sports teams and the Mountaineers of Appalachian State (Laura’s alma-mater). Mike and Laura are fortunate that their daughter (Darian) son-in-law (Jarrod) and grandson (Grey) also call Knoxville home!
