Mick was born in Derbyshire in 1977 and moved to Liverpool following a successful apprenticeship in Instrumentation, Measurement and Controls. Working on the shop floor for one of the largest control valve manufacturers he began his journey into valves. Going on to work for various valve and instrumentation companies up until 2009 where he decided to go it alone!
In March 2009 Mick launched Control Valve Solutions with ambitions of being an independent consultant to the Oil & Gas industry, after his first trip offshore his dream of being a one man band extended to what has become a 50+ team, with a turnover of around £7M within 10 years.

From humble beginnings Mick had to ‘learn on the job’, not having any qualifications in business did not deter him, today he is a confident leader who feels every day is a school day.
