Driven to win

Mike is renowned amongst colleagues for his energy, hard work and dedication.

With his parents previously living and working overseas, Mike was educated in boarding schools but regularly visited them as they moved between such places as Dubai, Thailand, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Sharjah.

It was this experience of expat life that inevitably led to him working offshore. He not only understands the expat way of life – he has always lived it.

Family values

Mike’s father’s senior roles within the oil and gas industry had a lasting influence on him and foreshadowed his future. Twelve years ago he happily returned to the Emirate of Dubai with his family when joining deVere and now, as if completing a full life circle, Mike is delighted he, his wife and children are back on UK shores, whilst travelling between the different and successful GWM Global offices.

Mike is forever looking forward to new and exciting opportunities that lay ahead whilst providing his children a wonderful childhood and the highest quality education.
