Michael's career started in accountancy, where he gained commercial and corporate experience working in the profession, and as Head of Finance of a major international shipping group. He transferred his business knowledge into executive search, where over the past 25 years he has enjoyed a varied career.
Achievements include taking a staffing group and executive search practice to a full UK stock market flotation, and its subsequent sale to a major US listed group. He now conducts senior level search for major global corporations, with particular focus on infrastructure, transportation and logistics. Michael joined Osprey Clarke in 2008 and currently serves as Chairman of Penrhyn International, a leading global network of retained executive search firms with offices in more than 40 major economic centres.
Michael is proud to be a trustee of Haven House Children's Hospice; an important charity that supports families and cares for children and young people with life-limiting conditions across North and East London and West Essex.
