Mike is a relative newcomer to Mackay, born and bred in Melbourne. Brought up in Glen Waverley and then bayside Black Rock and Beaumaris, he attended St Leonards College in secondary school then on to tertiary education at Monash University – finishing in 1988 with an economics degree. A career in banking started with NAB in 1989 – graduate program leading to a foreign exchange dealer role over the next 13 years – highlights were getting married to Fiona in 1994, 2 ½ years living in Singapore (son Harry born there in 1996) and daughter Charlotte born in Melbourne in 1998.
The family moved to Maffra, East Gippsland which became home from 2003 to 2014 – enjoying a laid-back lifestyle, strong involvement in sport and the local community. Mike worked in banking and finance roles up until 2008, when he commenced a role as financial planner for NAB. In 2014 the family decided that the warmer climate of Queensland appealed and Mike joined WBC in Mackay – providing financial advice to clients locally as well as west to Emerald, south to Rockhampton, north as far as Cairns.
Mike’s interests are family, wine, music, going to the gym, long walks on the beach with wife Fiona and their crazy Jack Russell terrier Zeena and being on the water – kayaking, fishing, stand up paddle boarding.
Since March 2019, Mike has been part of the EFS team and loves being part of a proactive, well respected local business that above all else always put clients first.
