Mike worked at KPMG from 1982 until 1999, initially as a tax specialist and then as a financial modelling consultant. From 1996 to 1999 he was a Principal Consultant responsible for developing KPMG’s London-based financial modelling service. During this time he wrote a Financial Modelling Handbook which set out the standards for KPMG’s financial modelling work, and he was also involved in re-designing and presenting training courses in financial modelling, both within KPMG and to external clients.
In 1999 Mike left KPMG to fulfil a longstanding ambition to travel around the world. On his return to the UK in 2000 he then set up his own financial modelling consultancy, TheModelAnswer.
