Micheál, who is from Bunclody in Co. Wexford, is a chartered quantity surveyor by profession and has been an active member of the SCSI for 22 years.
He was Chair of the South East Region from 2011 to 2013 before becoming Chair of the QS Group from 2015 to 2017. In the latter role he co-produced the first SCSI Report on ‘The Real Cost of New Housing Delivery’. Four years later in July 2020 as incoming President he presented the findings of the updated version of that well received report.
Micheál believes that the Society, as the independent voice of the property and construction sector, is ideally placed to make a real contribution to national policy formulation and implementation in general, and in particular to helping address the housing crisis, which is something he is passionate about.
In addition to being President of the Society, he is also the current Chair of the Construction Industry Council.
Outside of the SCSI, Micheál is founder and Managing Director of MGM Partnership, a leading chartered quantity surveying and chartered project management practice headquartered in Wexford.
