OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
Who is behind Bayleaf? And What do they do?
Mike’s Role in Bayleaf
“I work personally with every one of our clients; from local charity founders, community leaders, to high-profile individuals and international businesses. Each client receives the same level of skill, discretion and attention – no matter the scale of the contribution and impact. For reasons of confidentiality and consistency, I maintain full and singular contact with potential clients and clients from beginning to end of the process.
Whilst our full team is focused on each nomination, no client will ever need to deal with anybody other than myself. That is vital to confidentiality and is behind our track record of client service excellence.
Co-Founder & Director of Operations, Maria Gomes
“I have always enjoyed the challenge of bringing complex situations and difficult problems from chaos to order. From my corporate career working across multi-functional and multi-geographic teams to running Bayleaf, those organisational skills have been key.”
Maria is responsible for all the day-to-day elements of the Bayleaf operation, from external outreach programmes to obtain letters of support and items of evidence to create nominations for our clients, to maintaining our unique cloud-based system to allow clients to track progress of our work in real time.
Her skill set in working between the writing group, the client-facing team and the external supporters to ensure confidentiality, quality of content in letters and timely submission is a vital part of the Bayleaf success story and our peerless results and client experience.
