Mike Bannister

Vice President, Sales & Marketing


In the role of Vice President, Sales & Marketing, I am responsible for top line revenue for the full suite of JMP Solutions offerings as well as creating the overall marketing strategy and plan to strengthen our company’s market position and achieve our desired business goals. We are in constant pursuit of partner customers who share our values and our passion for factory floor automation and digital manufacturing. I lead a team of driven Sales and Marketing Directors who successfully become trusted advisors to our best customers and our top prospect customers.


Leadership and teamwork have been instilled in me from a very young age. Growing up in southern Ontario, I spent most of my childhood playing hockey and other team sports. I completed first diploma, Electrical Engineering Technology from Mohawk College and my second, Business – Sales & Marketing from Niagara College. After developing technical skills in various technical roles with other companies, I joined JMP as a Business Development Manager. I’ve since moved through several roles at JMP including Director of Sales for the Automation & Robotics Division, and now Vice President of Sales & Marketing. 


My wife and I spend most of our personal time, as our parents did, chasing around our two young children and driving them from hockey rink to hockey rink. We enjoy time on the water in a lake or by a pool in the summer and anything with ice in the winter. Although I still play hockey to this day, I’ve always been a better coach than a player. I get the honor of coaching my kid’s teams in my free time.
