Michael Prato

Director of Strategy

"I love the unconstrained nature of working for a young company like Avalanche Energy,” said Michael. “It enables me to have a direct and immediate impact wherever help is needed."

Michael joined Avalanche in early 2023 following a twenty-three year career in the United States Marine Corps and three years working as a strategy consultant and business developer advisor to companies involved with Department of Defense logistics and acquisitions programs in Washington, D.C. He brings a wealth of knowledge in building functional organizations and working with government agencies to deliver complex projects. As Director of Strategy at Avalanche, Michael will lead strategic partnerships with government, academia and industry partners.

Michael loves to fish, hunt and ride motorcycles and as recent Seattle transplants, he, his wife and their baby daughter look forward to exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest outdoors.
