Mark has a career that spans over 20 years in the fields of Hospitality, Human Resources Management, Administration, Finance, Travel and Adventure. The vast experience accumulated over the years has enabled him with expertise and confidence to contribute towards organisational success. He brings with him extensive experience from the corporate sector; local and overseas. After he finished his MBA, he wanted to move into management of his own business.
