Michael G. Wilson ’63 began his producing career in 1976, working with Albert “Cubby” Broccoli on The Spy Who Loved Me. Together, they co-produced the next six James Bond films, five of which Wilson also co-wrote. He then went on to produce the hugely successful GoldenEye with his sister, Barbara Broccoli, as well as the next nine Bond franchise releases. Wilson has also produced a number of successful film and stage productions; most recently, he and Barbara produced the box office hit No Time to Die, directed by Cary Fukunaga and starring Daniel Craig.

Michael graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 1963 (engineering). He then received a juris doctor from Stanford Law School and worked for the Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C., before joining the law firm Surrey & Morse. There, he became a partner specializing in international tax and business transactions before transferring to EON Productions, of which he is currently Chairman.

Interested in all aspects of still photography, Wilson is recognized as a leading expert on 19th-century photography. In 1998, he opened the Wilson Centre for Photography, one of the largest private collections of photography today, spanning works from some of the earliest extant photographs to the most current contemporary productions. The Centre is a facility for research on the history, aesthetics and preservation of photographs and loans to international museums and galleries.

Fellow of the Science Museum in London, Wilson is also a trustee of Harvey Mudd College, a trustee of the Carnegie Institution for Science and trustee of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. He has recently retired as trustee of the Art Fund and chair of the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation. Wilson and Broccoli are founders of the London Screen Academy and Directors of the Dana and Albert R Broccoli Foundation.

In 2022, he was awarded the Commander of the Order of the British Empire honour for services to film, to drama, to philanthropy and to skills. In 2014, the Producers’ Guild of America honored Wilson with the David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures and, in 2013, he received the BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Film for Skyfall.

Wilson is married to Jane Wilson, a Scripps College graduate. They have two sons and four grandchildren.
