Michael Butcher, President

(516) 992-3443


Michael founded The Corporate Vault in 2008 after successfully orchestrating the sale of UniVault (Universal Safe Deposit) to one of the largest global players in the industry. Michael built UniVault into a secure data storage and business recovery firm that served 400 major financial companies from 4 locations throughout the New York Metro area. The Company was chartered by the New York State Banking Department (as a safe deposit company) and consistently helped its clients remain operational and recover quickly during their declared emergency disasters.

With over 35 years of business experience, Michael has been involved with multiple startup groups in the software, medical, and distribution sectors. Michael and The Corporate Vault leverage this experience as they help business owners successfully grow their enterprise and/or transition out of their business with an exit strategy that allows them to realize full value of their life's work.

Michael earned his BS in Business Management from Bryant College.
