Michael Simpson

Chairman & CEO

As a son of educators and serial intrapreneur turned entrepreneur, Michael learned to uncover hidden gems in people and products.

Why PAIRIN? I’m most passionate about people realizing their potential and being freed from limiting statements and experiences of their past. Accomplishing that requires at least two parties to realize someone's potential. PAIRIN helps educators, employers and individuals do just that.

Who/what has been your greatest teacher? Resilience. Every meaningful success I’ve ever experienced has come from not giving in to the desire to quit - especially when others thought I should.

Things you love: Uphill climbs, the rush of a striking trout as it leaves the water, anything wild, when someone discovers real freedom for the first time, and the strength I get from knowing I’m loved no matter what.
