Having graduated from Seale-Hayne, Mike worked firstly as an adviser with Genus, before joining Andersons in 1994 at the Melton Mowbray office. In 1998 he relocated to head up the Andersons Salisbury consultancy team and since that time has worked predominately in the South and South-West of England.
Mike has nearly 30 years’ experience of helping clients achieve their business objectives. He provides advice to all sectors of farming and also has undertaken considerable work in respect of added value opportunities and diversification projects, as well as food chain development.
He has a specialist knowledge of the dairy sector, both in the UK and overseas, and has travelled extensively in Europe, New Zealand, China and the USA, adding perspective to his work in assisting clients to develop their dairy businesses in the UK. He also has a good understanding of organic production.
Mike is a Nuffield Scholar and in 2017 completed a Trehane Fellowship proposing a future strategy for the UK Dairy Industry.
Away from work Mike lives with his family near Salisbury and enjoys all outdoor activities, particularly cycling and cricket.
