Michael Abernathy is the general manager for Pinnacle Pet. He began his career with Pinnacle in 2014 in the sales department, and it wasn't long before he began breeding English Mastiffs himself.
An active member of Heartland Canines for Veterans and PIJAC (Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council), Michael is passionate about giving back and supporting the pet community. As a leader, he focuses on taking risks, leading by example and always looking ahead.
Michael understands that relationships are key and urges those interested in pursuing a career with pets to get involved with numerous industry groups. He also credits the team at Pinnacle for creating an environment that is dedicated to doing the right thing for dogs and the breeder community.
Michael enjoys spending time with his Mastiffs, fishing and playing Texas Hold'em. He lives in Seneca, MO with his wife, Anna, and their two children.
