Kieser - founder of Accom Swap.
In 2003 Mike had the foresight to realize the potential for
a bartering system in an ever escalating world wide financial
crises. Although there were house swap systems in place there
was nothing for the hospitality industry and so after much brain
storming with family members Accom Swap became a first and was
launched.Mike likes to think of the members of Accom Swap as
one big family and endeavors to keep that personal touch.Mike
does and is responsible for the web site designing and coding
and oversees the general management of the business.Mike can
