A graduate of the Property Economics Degree Course in DIT Bolton Street where he was awarded a gold medal for academic excellence, Mike holds a BSc (Surv) 1st Class Honours degree. He is a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor and is a member of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
Mike has extensive experience in commercial property. He joined Bagnall Doyle MacMahon in March 2009, having previously worked with Warren Private Clients as Head of Asset Management. There he was responsible for a mixed portfolio of commercial property which included shopping centres, retail warehouses, office and high street retail properties located in Ireland, UK and Europe.
Prior to that he spent more than 7 years working for Savills Ireland. Initially working in professional services he then joined the office agency team. The last four years were spent working in the Investment Department as an Associate Director. Focusing on the acquisition of commercial property investments for institutional and private clients, he was involved in over €400 million of transactions during this period.
Mike helps to bring the overall fitness quotient of the office closer to the national average. He has no plans to ever complete a triathlon, although he successfully climbed Mont Blanc a couple of years ago. With 3 young children, his ambitions now are generally focused around trying to get enough sleep.
He has been conscripted in to the GAA and is currently coaching U-10 Girls Football with Ballyboden St Enda’s. The girls have been making great progress and Mike anticipates that their skill levels will have exceeded his by U-12, when he will be forced into early retirement. When this day inevitably arrives he looks forward to learning how to swing a golf club properly.
