As part of the Binghamton Chamber of Commerce’s HYPE Award program celebrating young professionals and their contributions in the Southern Tier community, Michael Keenan was recognized for his successful work, talent, and dedication.

Michael is a Binghamton native and resident. After completing college and law school, Michael returned to Binghamton to practice law, with a focus on supporting businesses. Two years ago, he left private practice at a local law firm to join The Raymond Corporation to use his legal background to support the Corporation’s procurement organization.

Michael has utilized his legal background and skills to develop close supporting relationships with many different stakeholders within Raymond, including the engineering department, legal team, and internal business unit leaders. Michael has also creatively engaged with many startup companies to help them work with and grow their business with Raymond.

Michael is an exceptional listener and carefully weighs input received from others. He also tries to approach conventional procurement problems with creative and “outside the box” approaches to problem solving. A regular guest lecturer to students at Binghamton University and a mentor to several, Michael is truly deserving of this award.
