Mike Porteous

Head of Operations & Resource

Mike rapidly progressed to Duty Manager in an independent hotel early in his career before broadening his management experience in a multi-operation site with Everards Brewery in Leicester. He subsequently joined their internal audit team. His journey with Capcon started in 1990 as a Stock Auditor. He developed enthusiasm and expertise in the systemic approach to audit, integrating emerging Epos technologies, and harnessing the resultant explosion of data. He then spent many years working as Head of IT, developing and supporting Capcon’s bespoke software. The synergy of practical experience and technical understanding is the bedrock that makes Capcon’s reporting and control portfolio second to none.

As Head of Operations & Resource, Mike passionately believes that the collective expertise of our team is what makes Capcon the obvious choice when it comes to managing risk within any hospitality venture.

Recently relocated to South Wales, Mike has rekindled a love of playing tennis (badly). Besides watching his children develop into inspiring people, he lists his proudest achievement as becoming a qualified cellar manager with Eldridge Pope while still at university.
