Pathfinder Trade and Invest was set up by Michael Thomas and senior colleagues to promote and facilitate trade and investment with global growth markets. We are all about developing exports worldwide, and open to all businesses.

The Executives of Pathfinder are highly experienced in developing markets overseas. Pathfinder is non-political and non-governmental, but maintains close links with governments both in the UK and abroad.

Pathfinder has set up a number of strategic relationships to assist other organisations to develop their members’ interests in exporting.  These include the world’s biggest law firm, DLA Piper, as well as renowned media group, The Economist.

Michael Thomas, CEO & Founder of Pathfinder Trade and Invest, is also a Director of the Arab British Chamber of Commerce – an organisation that Pathfinder supports and maintains close links with.  He sits on a number of joint Business Councils and is the CEO of CASCA the Central Asian and South Caucasus Association.

“Our raison d’etre is to assist in opening up new market opportunities for exporters worldwide and to see them succeed. We are determined to get British, European and American business back in the driving seat to being the market leaders in exporting in all sectors of trade.”

- Michael Thomas CEO, Co-Founder

“British Business should shift their trading efforts away from Europe and towards emerging markets.- Britain could be STG 20 billion richer if mid-sized companies built up their export presence in markets outside Europe”
