Our Team

Mike Weaner

President and Senior Consultant

Mike has over three decades of experience providing a personalized, results-oriented approach to delivering IT and business consulting services to small and mid-sized businesses. Both as president of Comprehensive Data Services, and earlier as owner of the Micro Systems Engineering Company, Mike has served as an IT and network consultant, engineer, classroom instructor, subject matter expert on technical training and industry certification programs, and a variety of other advisory roles where command of both technology and business is needed.
Active in his community—he serves on the board of Feed Lucas County Children and as a Boy Scouts troop leader, has coached soccer and chess, and not content to be a spectator, has a history of sticking his nose into whatever else his kids are involved with.

Mike studied political science at Carleton College and earned a BA in Business and Management at Defiance College. He holds a number of technical certifications from CTIA, Microsoft, HP, Watchguard and other industry leaders.

When Mike’s not watching over our clients’ systems, he can be found reading, cooking, puttering around the house, and gearing up for his next try at getting on Jeopardy!
