Michael Romanelli, PhD

Vice President, Research & Business Development

After an exciting 12+ years supporting the growth and development of technology start-ups, to delivering top and bottom-line growth for >$20B global materials companies, Mike joined Staines Financial in September 2021 as Vice President, Research & Business Development.  In this role, Mike will leverage his deep technical and business background to support Staines Financial and it’s clients in achieving their financial goals.  With a knack for seeing the forest through the trees, a passion for solving complex problems, and a diverse toolbox of best practices, he looks forward to bringing innovative solutions to the Staines Financial family.


Mike has a work hard/play hard personality and when he’s not in “work mode” it’s all about family and adventures.  Mike, his wife, and three children enjoy anything that gets the heart rate up; skiing, biking, pick up sports, hiking and exploring new places, etc..when the rain comes, there’s nothing better than family game night, popcorn and a movie, or making mud pies outside.  With any “free” time left, he clears his mind tending to his 9 acres filled with an orchard, gardens, and even chickens!
