Mike Aden is the Assistant Controller for Hu-Friedy Manufacturing Company, a world leader in dental instrument manufacturing. He manages accounting, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and payroll for U.S. companies and the consolidation of all companies globally. A part-time collegiate job as an assistant to the Director of Performing Arts allowed Mike to be a part of a national touring production of Dream Girls. Amazed with the process of taking a show from semi-truck to stage and back again, he has been a huge fan of both musical and dramatic theater ever since.
Mike was introduced to Strawdog by friend and fellow board member Meaghan Clayton, and the first play he saw was the 2014 production of Great Expectations. After meeting many members of the Strawdog family at a fund-raising event the following year, Mike realized he wanted to be involved with Strawdog in a more substantial way. He was thrilled to be invited to join the board in July 2016.
