My short biog as per the Grow Cornwall web site www.growcornwall.co.uk
“Michael has been resident in Cornwall for over 20 years and in that time started his own software company delivering specialist solutions to a diverse range of businesses from the small to the very large both in the U.K. and overseas (e.g. Allied Bakeries, Mars, Johnson & Johnson, Guinness & Bird’s Eye Walls). Leading on from that he was Operations Director for The Idesta Group and was part of the team that raised £8 million in VC funding. In this role he was responsible for all software development, delivery and support for projects as diverse as a mobile solution for 1,400 BSkyB Engineers in the U.K. to a handheld stock and cash control system for Pepsi in Saudi Arabia.
Prior to that he was a director of a meat business involved in all aspects of the food supply chain and more recently has been acting as advisor to a number of smaller businesses in Cornwall primarily in the leisure and tourism industry. Michael joined Oxford Innovation in September 2009 and brings a deep understanding of all the issues of starting, growing and managing an SME business in Cornwall as well as industry knowledge in the food, IT and leisure sectors. This experience and knowledge will be used to ensure that high growth start-ups and existing businesses get the right level of support to enable them to meet, and exceed, their potential.”
Update as of November 2011:
In the Autumn of 2011 I was approached by the shareholders of Sullivan Cuff Software Ltd. about becoming their Managing Director and this was an opportunity that I did not wish to turn away so joined them full time on the first November 2011.
See www.inrstar.co.uk for full details of SCSL and what we do.
2012 and 2013 so far have been a very exciting time for SCSL with significant growth in turnover and number of staff. The business has a very bright future ahead of it and I am very pleased and proud to be a part of this and am working with a really brilliant team to achieve our growth objectives.
