Michael has always had a keen interest and passion for anything related to nature and conservation.
Since becoming a trustee in 2021, he has been impressed by the excellent work that the Trust is undertaking to create and maintain greenspaces and to restore nature across the Central Scottish Green Network (CSGN) and more widely.
He strongly believes that the Green Action Trust is privileged to be in a position to do something tangible and lasting to regenerate our environment and to reverse the loss of biodiversity for the benefit of our communities.
As well as being Chair at the Green Action Trust, he chairs the environment committee of his golf club and is a trustee for the Friends of Cammo (a local nature reserve in West Edinburgh) with responsibility for maintaining the website and wildlife recording.
Michael brings with him the industry and commercial experience of a long career in Financial Services and maintains an active involvement in this sector.
In his spare time, Michael is busy with family, golf, tennis, playing the guitar and learning Italian.
