Michael Langhout

Langhout International, LLC

Leveraging more than 30 years of building and operating small to medium enterprises, Michael Langhout provides personal coaching and mentoring to executives operating companies or non-profits whose main desire is growth. Services include team building and alignment, strategy thinking, execution planning, meeting and retreat facilitation, and development of customer centric business models.

As Founder and Managing Director of Langhout International, LLC, Michael Langhout has served in various capacities, including interim CEO and Executive Director. Prior to founding Langhout International, Michael was an entrepreneur / founder of several companies in the healthcare services, medical technology, and packaging industries.

Michael is effective working with the CEO, the senior leadership team, and with board members, and equally comfortable working with managers out on the shop floor. Michael has worked with clients throughout the U.S., Canada, and other international locations, serving their unique and special needs.

Michael’s approach is to seek to understand the needs of the client, their passion for doing what they do, their culture and people, and their desire to grow. He then works closely with the CEO and Senior Leadership Team to define the growth strategies, and build an execution plan with accountability. Positive change can be difficult, but without a plan and roadmap most companies will never achieve their full potential.

Michael Langhout’s career started with the Weyerhaeuser Company, where he progressed in roles of increasing responsibility from sales, sales management, and General Management. He then managed startup and turnaround manufacturing facilities for Stone Container, AllPak Container, and Corrugated Synergies International. He has also started and managed companies in the medical technology and health care services sectors, including Audient, LLC, Silere Medical Technology, Inc., and Mercury Medical Technologies. His special interest is with disorders of the auditory processing system.

Michael serves on several boards, and has coached companies presenting at the annual life science innovate Northwest Conference hosted by the Washington Biotechnology and Biomedical Association.

Michael graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a BA, and from the University of Washington with an MBA.

I'm delighted that my business associate, mentor, and friend Mike Langhout has chosen to align his strategic consulting practice with another phenomenal organization, Gazelles International. Mike's vast experience, wisdom and commitment to excellence are an excellent fit for the Gazelles brand. If you can "handle the truth", you and your organization would more than likely benefit from working with Mike. If you just need someone to tell you want to hear, or confirm what you think you already know, you should go elsewhere. Mike leads authentically from the heart and always does the right thing
