Mike has over thirty-five years’ experience in financial services, having worked with large corporate organisations as well as being a successful consultant within the Mutual sector. He previously held a variety of senior management and Board roles in Sales and Marketing with the Skipton Building Society Group. As a consultant, Mike worked with several Building Societies to assist in corporate planning, new business strategy, mentoring and staff development, within a regulated environment.
Mike joined PG Mutual as CEO in 2011, overseeing the rebrand of the business while also introducing technology with a front-end quote engine and application process which resulted in subsequent business development across a wider professional market. This has, in turn, seen record membership figures achieved by the Society, and a substantial increase in assets over the past 10 years.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a passion of Mike’s, and this has now been embedded into the PG Mutual business structure with a CSR committee and Corporate Planning.
Mike has also been a past Chairman of the Friendly Society Collective.
