Now retired, Mike was a corporate finance specialist for over 30 years. Having built his own accounting practice, Mike led mergers and acquisitions work in national accounting firms before founding Castle in 2007, and is a previous winner of the Insider South East Dealmaker of the Year and Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year.
Whilst grandchildren now occupy much of Mike’s time, he still manages to pursue his many other interests, including: rugby (past player and vice president of Tonbridge Juddians RFC); cricket (member of MCC and Band of Brothers CC) and chalk stream fly fishing. An unashamed Francophile, his interests include wine and good restaurants.
As Chairman of a philanthropic fundholder, The Lawson Trust CIO, Mike takes a keen interest in supporting Kent and Sussex based charities.
