Mike is Nemisys's Chairman, and his friendship and guidance goes back all the way to our beginnings, as does his interest in digital developments.
We first worked with Mike at British Paralympics, and a number of other sports and disability projects followed that. He was particularly pleased with the work we did on the accessible CMS system for the VISION 2020 UK website, so much so that he agreed to join us at strategic level, and has been keeping us on the straight and narrow ever since.
Mike has been blind since the age of ten, due to a firework accident. From that point on Mike used his passion for sport to aid his adjustment and rehabilitation. His love of, and involvement in sport has continued for the past 50 years.
He is a former Paralympic skier, social worker and leader of disabled charities. He was Chief Executive of Vision 2020 UK and served as Chairman of the British Paralympic Association. He was awarded an OBE in 2005 and a CBE in 2009 for Services to Disabled Sport and was appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant of London in 2016.
We should also mention our other board member, Izzy. She spends most of the time during meetings under the table.. Find out more about Izzy
