Ann Arbor SPARK CEO Podcasts: Conversations on Economic Opportunity capture the flavor of my one-on-one conversations with over one hundred key economic leaders in the region, including private sector CEOs, elected and appointed public sector leaders, and the executive leadership of key non-profit and academic institutions. The podcast series is designed to not only highlight that expertise, but also make it available to others who could benefit from the wisdom those business leaders can share.

Yan Ness and Mike Klein are co-CEOs of Online Tech. Online Tech is one of Michigan's first internet service providers and a leader in cloud hosting.

In my conversation with Yan and Mike, they talk about their decision to create co-CEO leadership, their thoughts on finding IT talent within the local community and why being located in Michigan is essential to their company.
