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.
