Mike Burke, Bass

Growing up in Windsor, Ontario along the Canadian shore of the Detroit River, Mike Burke had been influenced by a wide spectrum of music, with early roots in Gospel tradition (yes, that's where Motown originated after all). It was easy for him to gravitate back to those roots when he joined Caritas in 2008. A life-long Catholic from two families of centuries-long Catholics, Mike currently sings at St. Matthias Church in Somerset, NJ with the Folk Group and Ensemble choirs and plays accompanying guitar and percussion along with cantoring throughout the liturgical calendar.

Mike retired from Colgate-Palmolive in 2017 and has been President of his consulting firm, Seven Gables Consulting LLC, ever since. Colgate is where he started his professional life in the United States in 1989 after receiving his Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Alberta. Outside of consulting in the Litigation and Sustainability worlds, he continues to raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by running marathons and will re-enter the solo music world in the post-pandemic era to pursue other charitable opportunities wherever possible.
