About Mike

Mike is a pioneer, leader, innovator and visionary in luxury resort and residential development. His fierce tenacity to get things done regardless of the obstacles, his ability to see ‘problems’ as opportunities and his enigmatic capacity to bring people together, combine to make Ryan one of today’s most respected global entrepreneurs.    

For more than twenty years, Mike has been instrumental in the conception and development of ground-breaking projects from Canada, to Latin America and the Caribbean, to London and Asia. He has developed more than three million square feet of hotels, resorts, residential and commercial properties across the globe valued at more than three billion dollars.

Many of the elements now considered standard requirements for luxury developments were first his brainchild. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman project.  As Owner and Developer of the award wining resort, he was the first to appreciate that luxury resort developments require a combination of hotel and branded residential opportunities both working together seamlessly to offer an unparalleled lifestyle. Mike was also the first to realize the potential of bringing multiple complimentary brands together to create something unique, and uniquely valuable, in the world of luxury resort and residential development, such as:

A combination of skills and experience covering, design, construction, operations, sales, marketing and finance enable him to see all aspects of a project at once, making him a sought after strategic partner in real estate development and acquisitions and other business ventures.

He was Chairman of the Cayman Islands National Investment Council, and has been on the boards of the Private Finance Initiative Oversight Committee, the Cayman Islands Investment Council and the Planning Review Committee. His global leadership in the field has been recognised by such organisations as the publicly listed Egyptian Development company, Orascom, the largest resort developer in Egypt, for whom he has been a board member for the last four years as well as chairing the audit committee.

Along with developing real estate and investing in unique opportunities, Mike is interested in a wide variety of activities including surfing, scuba diving, flying and has recently launched a new Latin American company, Ceres Limited, producing and supplying the highest quality alternative medicine at the lowest cost, with the aim of becoming the largest global producer in the industry.

Mike is based, through his company Silverfin Development  in Grand Cayman, and is currently focused on projects in the Caribbean and Latin America.
