For the first 10 years of Mikes work life he worked for 35 different employers. In his words "I'm a product of the many really bad, and the few good, employers I worked for".
This background helped to influence Mike to "do it differently" in business.
His business career started with buying and selling goods as a second-hand dealer. 8 years later the entrepreneur in Mike surfaced when he launched a short distance furniture removal business. This evolved into MiniMovers. MiniMovers is today an innovative market leader, growing from an initial investment of $200 and a Ute, to an annual turnover exceeding $30 million with over 450 employees.
Mike has been on various Government committees including a Small Business Advisory Panel to the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia and a term as a Commissioner on the Australian FairPay Commission, charged with the responsibility of setting the minimum pay for workers in Australia. He is also on several boards including the Board of the Australian Institute of Management (AIM), The Cyber Institute (TCI), Awardware and the National Board of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards (The Duke).
His business MiniMovers is also the recipient of many Employer of the Year awards as well as 2003 Telstra Small Business of the year.
To keep “on the edge” Mike recently completed a 3 year Entrepreneurs Masters Program at MIT in Boston USA.
