Co-Owner and Director
Mike is the lovely Co-Owner and Director at GB Solutions. His background in Accountancy makes him ideal for specialising in Finance and Accountancy recruitment, covering the private, public and practice sectors. He also keeps the GB business on the straight and narrow, talking only in numbers, stats and financial gibberish.
Way, way, way (way) back, Mike started his career in Accountancy with Royal Worcester Spode before moving to MSF (Countrywide Farmers) in management accounting and credit management roles. His hands-on knowledge proved invaluable in understanding customers’ needs. Progressing in to a career in recruitment, Mike has gained over 20 whopping years of experience spanning qualified and non-qualified staff across industry, practice and not-for-profit sectors.
Eager to offer a more tailored service to clients and break away from the large company culture, Mike co-founded GB Solutions with Paul in 1999 at the age of 28. They both shared the passion of ‘changing the face of recruitment’ for the better to offer a service that had passion and integrity.
Living in Worcester with his wife, two children and varying number of pets, Mike is actively involved in community events – so much so we don’t know where he finds the time. He is a Founder and Trustee of Norton Community Trust, was a member of the Interim Executive Board for Dursley C of E Primary School, currently coaches a junior cricket team, football team and plays in a local skittles league, which is really just a cover for going to the pub midweek. Mike is passionate about career coaching and has links with schools and colleges, offering career advice to young people about to embark upon their careers and often speaks on local BBC Radio about employment related matters.
Mike is an avid sports fan supporting Worcester Warriors, Worcestershire County Cricket Club and Worcester City FC, which goes down very well in Gloucestershire!
