Michael F. Zendan II
As Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Administrative Officer for Mood Media Corporation, Mike Zendan is responsible for Mood’s legal, licensing and human resources functions across the enterprise and serves as Mood’s corporate secretary.
Mike is a seasoned executive who has contributed significantly to three successful business transformations over his 20 year in house legal and business career. His skills were instrumental in helping steer Horizon Lines, a publicly listed shipping line, through troubled waters. Mike was part of a small and committed team responsible for a series of out of court, financial restructurings that spanned over 12 months, addressing debt obligations in excess of $700 million, and leading to the successful merger and sale of the company.
During his decade as the General Counsel at Muzak LLC, Mike spearheaded strategic change including the transformation of a two person-licensing department focused solely on reporting and compliance into a department of six specialists focused on aggressive content acquisition, cost efficiencies, and relationship development. Managing a P&L that equaled $18.9 million, Mike showed his combined legal and business acumen in many ways at Muzak, restructuring and re-licensing a residential, audio offering powered by Muzak and learning the nuanced-art of franchisee relations as he teamed with an internal franchise department to drive national sales, solve disputes, support franchisee initiatives, and enforce franchisor standards.
At Coltec, Mike was part of a team that helped successfully position Coltec as a desirable, strategic acquisition that was eventually purchased by Goodrich, Inc. As part of “Coltec 2000,” a company-wide initiative that attempted to drive growth via strategic additions and bolt-on acquisitions, Mike was principally responsible for structuring, negotiating, and closing two high profile acquisitions involving an aerospace company in the U.S. and an industrial group in France for a combined investment of $70 million.
