Michael Anthony Hayes

Trustee, Axis Foundation


Michael Hayes has been a senior manager and a leader within the charitable, public and commercial sectors for more than 30 years. His achievements include turning around registered charities and taking them through to fit for purpose and then on to being amongst the very highest performers in their sector.

For example, under his stewardship as CEO (2004 -2016), Trust Thamesmead grew from a failing charity to one of the leading community development organisations in London.

Michael achieves this through a focus on strategic vision, governance, and leadership and high quality operational delivery.

Michael has taken on a voluntary role of developing the Axis Foundation (founded by Axis Europe Property Services plc) as well as providing bespoke advice to some of the charities that the Foundation has supported.

The Axis Foundation grant funded over £1m in eight years to over 110 small, local and impactful causes; in 2018 the Axis Foundation won the best Corporate Foundation Award at the Business Charity Awards – and in 2019 it celebrates its 10th birthday.
