Mark is co-founder and director of NotCentralised, president of the Australian DeFi Association and president of the Data Science and AI Association of Australia. NotCentralised is a company helping organisations and individuals navigate the complex and constantly evolving world of digital technology. One of the main focus areas for NotCentralised is the development and growth of web3 technologies. The Australian DeFi Association is a not-for-profit community organisation focused on providing educational resources and news updates from the world of blockchain, DeFi, web3 and all things crypto.

Mark has over 11 years of experience working in both the finance and technology industries. He developed a passion for analytics and the power of technology and data to transform the way we make decisions whilst working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia. From there he worked as a management consultant focusing on software solutions (Business Intelligence, Forecasting, Activity Based Costing) and eventually moved into a Business Development role. His passion for problem solving could not be tamed and the call to become more hands on again beckoned with the opportunity to join the data research firm QMG and lead their technology transformation. He was instrumental in transforming the way the firm created its unique brand of equity research and it is this continued passion and skill-set that he brought to his work at Canaccord Genuity in London. Since then Mark has moved back to Australia to continue his pursuits of bringing data analytics and other disruptive technologies to the marketplace.

Mark graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Commerce degree and also holds a Masters of Enterprise from the Melbourne Business School (University of Melbourne).
