PEOPLE

Beechwood’s world-class, multi-disciplinary team and associates seek clarity on the other side of complexity. Although these experienced practitioners are subject matter specialists, they prefer to facilitate and motivate those who then have to implement the strategy rather than instruct and dictate.

Mike has over 25 years of experience with the procurement and implementation of revenue-generating and transactional intelligence solutions for communication service providers in the US, Canada, Caribbean, and Latin American markets. Michael’s thought leadership on the application of ‘mobile money’ or electronic payment systems and mobile commerce for high growth emerging markets and social impact development has been recognised by GSMA, USAID, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He has worked as an advisor to mobile network operators, financial institutions and their implementing partners on best practices and regulatory frameworks for electronic money services in fragile states such as Afghanistan, Haiti, Somalia and Zimbabwe.
