INTRODUCING MIKE GREENE AS TRADE MASTERMINDS NEW CHAIRMAN

Trade Mastermind is delighted to announce the appointment of Mike Greene as Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Mike officially joined the Trade Group as Chairman on 1 December after a period of shadowing the Board in September.

CEO Joseph Valente said: “We are really looking forward to Mike joining us and benefitting from his broad experience and knowledge and to be working with him over the coming months and years.

“Trade Mastermind is a unique organisation that has been providing Tradesman with business training since 2019. We have ambitious plans to transform the business, working closely with partner organisations to provide integrated and seamless training, helping businessman to get off the tools within the construction, plumbing and renewable industries to grow their business to 7 Figures and beyond. Mike’s appointment will help strengthen the relationships with our partners for the benefit of everyone we serve.”

Mike holds a number of roles at other organisations and is a self-made millionaire who grew up in Peterborough. In 2011, he took part in the Channel 4 programme Secret Millionaire, returning to the council estate where he spent his childhood in Peterborough, volunteering at the New Ark Adventure Playground and the ‘Time Stop’ YMCA hostel. Through the process of being a ‘secret millionaire’, Mike says he has learned something rare and important: “It’s more rewarding to give it than it is to earn it.”

Although still very much involved in business, consultancy and behavioural profiling, Mike now works closely with another ‘secret millionaire’, Marcelle Speller OBE, founder of localgiving.com, which facilitates online fundraising for community groups and their supporters. Mike is also a ‘business angel’, mentoring young entrepreneurs (via the IGNITE Peterborough charity) and providing seed-funding investment to help new businesses to get started and to flourish.

Mike said: “I am delighted to be offered the opportunity to Chair such an excellent and niche business. I have worked alongside Trade Mastermind for the last few years and have been deeply impressed by the dedication of staff and their focus on helping small trade businesses and owners to achieving 7 Figures and beyond. This appointment brings with it the opportunity to build rapidly on the great success that has been achieved over the last 3 years and assist the Trade Group in achieving their long term goals to be the number 1 provider in business training for the Trades industry. Trades people might be great engineers and technicians, but are they great business owners?

The Trade Mastermind offers a unique and exciting opportunity that teaches skilled tradesman to become great businessman and achieve 7 figures.”

COO Christopher Ruggiero added “Having served as COO since the business launched in 2019, now is the right time to bring someone onboard to help myself an Joseph to be accountable to our 3 year strategic goals and to lead the Trade Group Board. The team and the Board have been strengthened and stabilised over the last 12 months. As an organisation we are embarking on a new three-year strategy, which is closely aligned with our strong standings. The Trade Group is well positioned for a chairman to carry forward the future development of our organisation. Mike Greene is a highly qualified Board executive who shares our values and understands the importance of what we are trying to achieve as a Trades business training provider.”
