Mike Scatliff, MALA, CSLA, was born and raised in Winnipeg. By the mid-1980’s he had graduated with his Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Manitoba. After a dry-run in Vancouver, he embarked on a career in Bermuda and started a family with the help of his wife. By 1990 he was helping raise three kids while forming the company now known as Scatliff + Miller + Murray. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Mike proved to be very successful in hiring talent. He has no individual awards or successes, but it was the team at Scatliff+Miller+Murray that excelled. The firm won many competitions and awards over the years but, most importantly, the firm employed and supported many Canadian families and helped many communities become happier and more sustainable. As interesting trivia, in 2000 the firm was nominated as the Entrepreneur of the Year by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Mike was fortunate to sit on many Boards over his career including the Lake Winnipeg Foundation, FortWhyte Alive, The Winnipeg Zoo, and the Manitoba Theatre Centre, and he was the Chairman of the Construction Committee for the 1999 Pan American Games. Mike is currently the Co-Chair for Economic Development Winnipeg.
In the future, Mike is determined to spend as much time as he can at the Lake of the Woods with his family, without drowning.
