I've learned so much about the Asian mindsets and cultures. Every day I see opportunities across Asia, for either industry disruption, aggregation or for Australian companies to initiate a presence.
Michael initially worked in the FinTech sector for a large US Corporation, before taking up a role with a respected UK-based Investment Bank.
He has been based in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia & Indonesia at various times over the last 28 years, initially heading up the Asia Region for a UK-based provider of software-based Investment Banking solutions. In Hong Kong he spearheaded the push into China for a US-based provider of Investment Banking services & solutions.
He then undertook several corporate advisory & turnaround roles, which included the establishment of a new entity in Asia Pacific Region for an LSE-listed company, then the restructuring of a Swedish/French firm across the Asia Pacific Region.
He helped to formulate & deliver the Asia Strategy for one of Australia’s largest banking & financial services groups, subsequently heading up Strategic Projects across Asia for the largest global FinTech.
Michael has worked across several disciplines, with an emphasis on Banking & Financial Services, Information Technology, Software Development, and technological innovation. Also with deep experience in restructuring, capital raising and M&A.
He is a member of a start-up group based in Singapore, assessing their opportunity-flow, help them to develop & implement their business models and ultimately their ‘go-to-market’ strategies.
His many years experience across Asia & the Indian Subcontinent has enabled Michael to assist many foreign companies - large Fortune 500 down to start-ups - to understand the idiosyncrasies of doing business across Asia and to implement winning strategies.
