Michael W Peet – MD
Mike had years of experience in blue chip companies before passing through a corporate MBA scheme then setting up his own consultancy firm in 1999.
After working within the fire sector for several years Mike set up Firecomply as a new specialist fire safety consultancy just weeks before the global financial crisis and UK recession took hold in 2007. He steered it through that difficult time and came out stronger. Mike was at the forefront in developing clients from City of London blue chip organisations down to the tiny village hall and across a variety of sectors in social housing, education, commercial offices and industrial sites. He also developed the services beyond basic fire risk assessments to cover specialist fire engineering projects and expert witness service.
