Mike was born in Wrexham in 1983. He’s always had a keen interest in how things work and spent much of his childhood and formative years tinkering with (and mostly breaking) computers – it’s the best way to learn he informs us! Due to his passion for business and computers he studied for a degree in Business & Computing, where, he not only achieved his honours degree but also a first class in pub studies, mostly due to his part-time job at the Pant-yr-Ochain in Gresford.
Shortly after graduating an opportunity came along to join Scottish Power as a graduate IT Engineer and he leapt at the chance, it was upon joining the team at Scottish Power Mike and Kurt first worked together. It didn’t take long before they were putting ideas together for setting out on their own and by mid-2008 they formed Vigo.
