Michael has a detailed knowledge of retail and retail operations in three key countries around the world and has partnered with us to launch a new concept into the global market. We value his contribution enormously and look forward to working with him for many years to come.
Michael has a complete end-to-end business process mentality. He is not only a multi-skilled Manager but a Multi-skilled Leader with an ability to both inspire and challenge his co-workers. Mike has an eye for detail and a specific ability in seeing the bigger picture but also to see and understand all steps in a process to ensure all tasks are completed to meet and exceed all expectations. Mike is very skilled in all facets of business operations and is confident in his background knowledge to make the hard decisions with certainty. He also has an unmatched ability in resourcing the most appropriate people/business for any task at hand. I personally saw Mike in two levels of Management – one being his high end decision making ability and secondly his mentoring ability to be there for anyone who needed a hand and/or advise. I can safely say that Mike has been the most well rounded COO I have worked for and met and would certainly jump at the chance to worked for and learn from one of the best again.

As COO, Michael was a great leader – well planned, organised, strategic yet still detailed in his approach. Hence the company’s results were forth coming. His leadership style was both approachable and supportive with sufficient advice balanced with direction. His staff were thus motivated, loyal and results orientated. I would not hesitate from recommending Michael in this or any other high level management/leadership capacity.
Mike’s strategic mind, coupled with real life on-the-ground experience, allow him to advise C-Suite executives like nobody else I’ve worked with. He is a straight shooter who can get to the real issues in lightening speed.
Mike was instrumental in managing the process of a change in ownership of the North American business and lead the ops group and finance group in the 18 month successful turnaround of the business. Mike also lead the team that relocated the physical operation from Pennsylania to South Carolina during a crucial period in the selling \ shipping cycle. His works resulted in his moving to the parent in Sydney , Australia.
I reported to Michael in my role as Brand Manager for Skin Doctors which was one of the businesses/brands that Michael over saw. I found Michael to be an innovative leader whom had a passion to drive the business far greater than the boards expectations. I would be honoured to work with Michael again. Mark Fowler
Mike is a mover and “make it happen” guy. Perceptive to the business and people needs. Gets a lot done in a short period of time and is ready to do more the next day. Very genuine and helps out people. Many connections with businesses who can help him out with advice or assistance.
Mike and I worked together during our time at Sheridan Europe Ltd, based in the UK. Mike made an immediate and positive impact with his eye for the financial detail, as well as the broader operational and strategic factors that were the key drivers of the Global Sheridan branded business. His personable style was very effective, and his colleagues quickly gained confidence in his ability to find solutions that were both practical and worked.
Mike and I worked together on a variety of projects. He had a solid understanding of our business situation and was good at identifying and analyzing relevant information that led to optimum decisions. His perspective was quite often different that other members of management which ultimately made us a stronger team. He has a strong work ethic and takes pride in delivering solid results. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
Micheal knowledge of the retail market in Australian is without equal – the best networked person I know. Mike identifies the problems within an organisation and finds the best way to manage that change process and achieve the best results for the client.
