Mike began his career with a national financial services provider, working at a senior level in sales and operations management. In 1999, he decided to give something back to the community and began working with Grosvenor Housing Association, helping the organisation to build social enterprises. It was one of these ventures which became the seminal project for what is now Procure Plus Holdings Limited.
Procure Plus is now recognised as the market leader in its field, setting the standard for socially responsible organisations of its kind.
Mike’s professional experiences during the past years with Procure Plus – focussing on socio and economic regeneration – has led to his working with Cabinet Office, Homes and Communities Agency and HM Treasury as an advisor and member of several task forces in this field. He can advise on best practice for collaborative working in the social housing sector with a particular emphasis on how to make the money invested work harder.
