Mike Potter

Marketing Manager - Acquisition



Mike is from Auckland and joined cbm in 2013 after rehabilitating from a spinal chord injury. Previously he had managed a guest house in Egypt with his wife, lectured at AUT and enjoyed competitive distance running. He brings expertise in mission, theology, marketing, tertiary education and disability to cbm.

 

My passion for cbm:

Working for an organisation that restores hope for people marginalised by poverty and disability is fulfilling, inspiring and humbling at the same time. Theological studies have given me a deeper appreciation and passion for the “sermon of love” that cbm brings to the world. I love working for an organisation that is truly bringing renewal to the world we live in. 

 

My experiences that affirm this belief:

Observing the amazing difference the cbm supported deaf unit makes in Cairo, giving opportunities for both education and employment, made working here a “nobrainer”. The benefits I have had from a wheelchair, modified car and accessible home and workplace are things that everyone should have access to if they need them.
