"I had retired from my role as COO of a plc in Financial Services when a Mike Coady; the then Regional Manager for Western Europe (now a Director of deVere) called me and asked if I would like to meet him and Nigel Green, deVere Group CEO.  During the conversation, I realised I was not ready to leave business life and the opportunity to return to my routes; where I started my career in sales at the sharp end, was too much to resist so I started with deVere in May 2010. I am now responsible for France as a country manager, with three offices and am having the time of my life. deVere is a fine ethical company and I have never heard anything other from all the senior people here from Nigel Green down, other than “…the client comes first, second and third”. This profession that I have been in for nearly 42 years has had its fair share of bad press; some of it deserved, but the deVere approach to client needs is, I believe, second to none.  Over 60,000 clients? The advice has to be sound and it is. I am proud to have my “last fling” with a company of this calibre."

    The Person Behind the Brand

    Mike’s track record and accomplishments merit their own space. But the man behind the brand is an approachable people’s person and family man.

    Mike was born in Shrewsbury to a dad with a busy career in oil and gas. He attended boarding school in the UK before gaining a taste of the wider world thanks to his father’s overseas job postings. As a child, he lived in Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Jeddah, Doha and Thailand among a string of other destinations – giving him a particularly broad and well-rounded worldview.

    He later found himself back in the UK, where he attended Royal Shrewsbury School. Mike’s business acumen was obvious from his school days – where business studies particularly fascinated him. It’s almost cliché, but Monopoly is still his favorite board game – because he says it plays to his two key strengths: strategising and wealth management.

    Mike studied at Birmingham University –Manufacturing Engineering and Business Studies.

    When taking a few minutes away from a hectic career creating customer-centric success stories, he prefers somewhat more relaxing activities – such as spending time being active and working on his personal development. He likes travelling and is ready to head out to new adventures at the drop of a hat.

    The Now

    Seventeen years ago, he happily returned to the Emirate of Dubai and then returned to the UK in 2015. Back in 2017, Mike returned to Dubai and is now living the Expat life once more.

    Mike is forever looking forward to new and exciting opportunities that lay ahead.

    Family Values

    Mike’s father’s senior roles within the oil and gas industry had a lasting influence on him and foreshadowed his future. Fourteen years ago he happily returned to the Emirate of Dubai with his family and then returned to the UK in 2015. Back in 2017, Mike returned to Dubai and is now living the Expat life once more.

    Mike is forever looking forward to new and exciting opportunities that lay ahead.
