Director, National Engineering Services, CBRE UK Ltd
Immediate Past Chairman, Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, Scotland
Michael is a Chartered Engineer with interests in Building Services Engineering Consultancy and Renewable Energy Development. Michael is a Director with Commercial Property Consultant CBRE, responsible for the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices in Scotland.
Michael achieved Chartered status and full CIBSE Member in 2007, having worked with such recognised names as Wallace Whittle, Hulley & Kirkwood and FES Ltd. Michael launched GSG Energy as a full time concern in 2009 before taking that consultancy business into CBRE in 2013.
Michael firmly believes that the way business is done has changed dramatically in the last 5 years and will look to encourage young and upcoming Engineers members to achieve their full potential in technical excellence and ultimately good business.
Michael considers himself very fortunate to be leading a strong technical team at CBRE looking at many aspects of Building Services Engineering and its application across different sectors and for differing purposes. This means that every day is truly unique!
During his active involvement in the CIBSE Scotland community, Michael has raised significant monies for the CIBSE benevolent fund.
Michael is a competitive sportsman, who plays rugby, football, golf and regularly runs. Michael has played (and won!) at Murrayfield with GHKRFC in the West End. Michael has come out of retirement (again) to play for GHKRFC as well as coaching and picking up the whistle to referee the wonderful game!
