With over 20 years’ experience in the financial marketplace, Michael has worked in investment banks, software providers and technology firms. After beginning his career as a macro-economic analyst, Michael moved into a sales role and has worked in that capacity ever since. He started at the earlier days of electronic trading by selling trading platforms for several firms and then moved in the operational space and continued to work for Broadridge. A key relationship developed over a number of years prior, however, pulled him into the world of trading securities, and here, he was at the forefront of promoting market access and electronic solutions to the emerging markets. Following this, he invested privately, raised capital and advised several technology firms on sales and marketing. A keen skier and tennis player, Michael has always been competitive, and believes that the harder you work, the easier it gets.
