Michael Franco, Director

In his business, Michael opens the line of communication between clients, customers, and businesses to lead technology and digital transformation strategies.

Michael has more than 15 years’ experience in the private sector, and has cross-functional experience in management consultation, team building, professional development, strategic implementation, and company collaboration.

Michael was introduced to Border Trust by a current Board member and joined the Board in November 2020. Michael says he wanted to join Border Trust to participate in an organisation that his own community benefits and grows from.

“Being part of an organisation that supports the ideals of working together, we can make a real difference and that means a lot to me personally”.

A Community Foundation is an independent philanthropic organisation working in a specific geographic area which, over time, builds up a collection of endowed funds from many donors in the community. It provides services to the community and its donors, makes grants and undertakes community leadership and partnership activities to address a wide variety of needs in its service area.”
