Mark studied finance and law at university in New Zealand before gaining a Chartered Accountants qualification and emigrating to United Kingdom. In London, Mark worked for Price Waterhouse Coopers before moving to industry, taking up a number of senior finance roles, mainly in special engineering businesses and latterly high tech biotech, jointly building and running a successful, international business.
