Meet Our Co-Founders


I am Mike Sipple, Jr., Co-founder and CEO of the Talent Magnet Institute. My dad, Mike Sipple Sr., and I laid the foundation for the Talent Magnet Institute in 2001. We continued to build on that foundation as we ran Centennial Inc., our 46-year-old executive search business.

In 2017, our clients and advisors encouraged us that now was the time to take our practices, solutions, and models to organizations in unique and focused ways. So we brought our proven talent solutions to leaders and teams by creating the Talent Magnet Institute®.

We believe we are better together, so we have assembled the best organizational and leadership consultants who are focused on and dedicated to helping leaders lead themselves and their teams to greater success.
