The UK’s leading compliance provider, Shieldyourself, has appointed hospitality services expert, Mike Wilson as Commercial Director.


Shieldyourself has developed an unparalleled reputation for its innovative approach to Health and Safety, Fire Safety and Food Safety regulatory compliance across the retail and hospitality sectors.

Mike will work closely with the senior team to open new markets, help grow the business and develop key customer accounts.

With more than 25 years working in the hospitality industry, Mike has unmatched knowledge and insights across the hospitality and food safety sectors.  As managing director for NSF’s International retail division, he formulated global strategic direction for the food safety consultancy.  He became known for his strong team leadership and business growth, which led to the company becoming the market leader in the UK retail food safety sector.


Speaking about his appointment at the Manchester headquartered Compliance Company, Mike said:


“I am delighted to be joining the Shieldyourself family, the team has built a fantastic reputation as a growing company with excellent services to support the retail, food and hospitality industry.  As the UK’s leading compliance consultancy for the hospitality sector, it has already delivered incredible results and has a strong client base.


“Shieldyourself refuses to stand still, and the company continues to develop and innovate to find new and improved ways of tackling compliance.  It’s an exciting time for the business and I look forward to working with this dynamic team and helping the company continue to grow and develop.”


Each year, over 200 new businesses switch to Shieldyourself, a key feature of their approach is supporting businesses in order to develop, monitor and verify their own compliance culture rather than them simply outsource this to consultancies through an audit service.  Shieldyourself provide clients with customised fire, health & safety and food safety policies; training to improve management, staff competencies and capabilities; 24/7 access to high quality professional advice; and innovative user-friendly compliance monitoring software to improve management oversight (performing over 1 billion online and offline checks each year).


It is the use of the cloud-based software delivered through a range of apps that is fueling the company’s extraordinary growth.  Clients can easily access their compliance status as the system is fully responsive across devices.  This offers businesses a unique solution to their health & safety needs, meaning that accountability is increased in-line with visibility or risk across an organisation.


Welcoming Mike to the Shieldyourself team, Mark said: “The knowledge and expertise that Mike has of the hospitality sector is outstanding, and we are thrilled to have someone of his caliber and profession to join our team.


His reputation for business growth, team motivation and leadership goes before him, and we look forward to him bringing these skills to our team.  The hospitality industry is incredibly fast paced, as is the world of compliance, therefore Mike’s appointment comes at the perfect time for us to benefit from his experience and expertise in this new strategic role, as we plan to take Shieldyourself to the next level.”
