Mike has had over 25 years’ Financial Services experience in both entrepreneurial and large corporate settings. His core expertise is in Asset Management and Private Wealth Management and he has worked for such well-known names as Flemings, Foreign & Colonial, James Capel, HSBC and Collins Stewart. He has experienced the benefits of executive search from both sides and, having worked consistently at Board level, he is well placed to help clients secure the talented leaders they need.
Mike’s previous military experience to command level has also given him considerable added experience in picking the right person for the task in hand, and just as importantly in assessing those not fit for role. A graduate of both the Naval and Army Staff Courses, and as a military pilot, he gained insight into the attributes needed for taking the right decisions under pressure. Subsequently a Gentleman-at-Arms in the UK Royal Household, Mike has taken part in many colourful State occasions.
Mike has a keen interest in motor racing and automotive engineering, and having owned a succession of classic cars, Michael happily acknowledges that he is a ‘petrol-head’. He is also an illustrator and cartoonist and lives in Hampshire
