Based in Guernsey, Mark is our Associate Director of Corporate Services; a position he obtained in 2016 with a mandate to help grow the Aztec Group’s Corporate Services division. Prior to this Mark led a team of accountants who served a portfolio of private equity and real estate clients.
Mark has been with the Aztec Group since 2009, and has seen the Guernsey office grow from a team of 15 to over 110 people. He has played an instrumental role in this growth story, having been a leading figure in the client migration process during which he personally on-boarded over 35 new funds, and managed the associated resource and system requirements. With experience in both fund and corporate structuring and administration, Mark also has expertise in listed funds and can be credited with strengthening the Aztec Group’s capability in this area.
Mark puts his decision to join the Aztec Group down to his awareness of the Group’s infectious culture and the stir it was creating in the marketplace. He explains, “I knew I wanted to work with the Aztec Group because their employees were natural brand ambassadors for the company with their enthusiasm. The growth and product lines also provided me with confidence in the company’s abilities, and I saw exciting opportunities to develop my career with the Group. I have not been disappointed, and my expectations have been surpassed”.
Prior to joining the Group, Mark spent a number of years living and working in Australia, having moved there was his family in 2006. During his time in the country he held a number of roles in the finance industry, whilst also taking the opportunity to explore the country and satisfy his passion for travel and adventure.
A calm and approachable person, Mark possesses the perfect attributes to assist the management of his growing corporate services team. A team player not only in the office, Mark also loves to get involved with sports, having played hockey for Guernsey for over 15 years. Mark is also no novice when it comes to ‘taking one for the team’ and has competed in the White Collar Boxing as well as the Guernsey Marathon, all in aid of some fantastic charities.
Mark holds a degree in Environmental Sciences and Physical Geography BSc (Hons) from Oxford Brookes University, and is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
