About Michael Casagrande

Mike Casagrande started in the IT space with a leading Bay Area technology services strategy firm. With more than 15 years of advisory experience, Mike’s specialties include UCaaS and CCaaS, global networks, and data center/cloud services in the mid-market and enterprise spaces. Before joining the UPSTACK team, Mike was co-founder of M2 Enterprise Group, a telecommunications consulting firm specializing in unified communications, contact center services, colocation, network services, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS).

When UPSTACK acquired M2, Mike Casagrande, along with co-founder Mike Leonardi, joined the firm as partners. They also serve as advisors to enterprise business customers that are sourcing cloud, data center, network connectivity, and unified communications through the UPSTACK platform. Prior to the acquisition, M2 was named Bridgepointe’s fastest-growing agency, further cementing Mike and his partner as respected technicians in the space.

Before co-founding M2 in 2018, Mike was an independent agent at Bridgepointe. Among his accolades, he is a three-time Bridgepointe President’s Club winner and a second-place 2020 earner in sales revenue. His expertise and reputation helped M2 grow a customer base of more than 350 businesses in just a few short years—a growth rate of 100-125 percent year over year.

Mike’s proficiency in colocation solutions, unified communications, and contact center technology makes him an asset to UPSTACK’s advisory team. This knowledge, combined with UPSTACK’s ability to address any cloud or IT infrastructure requirement, enables Mike to continue to be a trusted partner for all of his clients, both current and new.

Mike Casagrande has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Pepperdine University, where he also played Division 1 water polo on the men’s team. Mike is married with one young son and is currently living in the Southern California area. He was raised in and has been a longtime resident of Orange County, CA.
