Michael LagunaGeneral Manager
With an entrepreneurial spirit, Michael loves thinking outside the box to make things happen. Aside from serious restaurant chops, he also holds a degree in Horology and excels as a goldsmith, silversmith, and platinum smith. He made his way to Boulder from his home state of Missouri via Los Angeles and Las Vegas, where he worked at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.
When he’s not getting to know folks at Centro, Michael loves spending time with his wonderful wife and kids and getting outside to hike, bike, and explore. Above all else he believes in putting others first and tries to help people out whenever he can.
“Centro has been incredibly generous to Intercambio over the years and they’re great partners with us. They’re fun to work with, always provide amazing food that people talk about for months following an event, and they truly value their diverse workforce. At our annual spring fundraiser they provide high quality food for 300 participants at no charge – and that is a huge part of its success. They have many employees who participate in Intercambio as English learning students, and they value the ongoing education and advancement of all their employees.”
-Lee Shanis, Executive Director and Co-founder, Intercambio
“Having Centro as a partner has really elevated the status of our event. Their support is enabling Thorne to connect so many of our community’s low-income youth to nature, which in addition to building earth stewardship has benefits for heath and wellness, academic achievement, social well-being! We’re very grateful to have them as our community partners”
– Keith Desrosiers, Executive Director, Thorne Nature Center
