As a qualified actuary, Mike’s career spanned more than 40 years in financial services, in the earlier years in senior positions for the Prudential, Barclays and Rothschild Investment Trust.
In addition to being involved in a management turnaround leading to sale at a large multiple of the original purchase price, during the later years Mike led the successful development of three different businesses. One of these involved acquisition by the then largest company in the world, whilst Mike took his final company from a start-up with 20 personnel through an AIM listing with several hundred staff.
Since Mike’s retirement as CEO that business has fully listed and now has an imminent value post-merger of around £1 billion.
Mike is a believer in the application of technology to business situations and in a customer-centric focus.
