Early in his career, he held financial roles in the telecommunications industry and banking.

“As we work to integrate Office Depot and OfficeMax, clear and effective communication with our investors and the financial community is essential,” said Steve Hare. “We are excited about the depth of experience and expertise that Mike brings to this role, particularly the relationships that he has formed while at OfficeMax.”

Steele, 41, is a CFA charterholder and graduated with an MBA from Loyola University Chicago and with a BS from Northern Illinois University. He has been an active member of the Senior Roundtable of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI), and is a former board member of NIRI’s Chicago chapter.
