Co-Founder & Executive Director

Mark was raised in an immigrant family in Toronto, Canada, with strong appreciation for the power of education to improve the path of both an individual and an entire community. He moved to Asia in 1994 after having also lived in Italy and the United States, and in pursuit of a childhood ambition branched back from a 20-year career in finance and investment toward social service. Mark was formerly a #1-rated equity analyst at Morgan Stanley, where he worked for 16 years and ran its global telecom research team, after which he provided strategic advice to News Corporation and a local venture capital firm. His prior work took him around Asia, with extensive experience in China, India and ASEAN. He graduated on the Dean's List from the Ivey Business School at Western University in London, Canada, and studied at Commerciale Luigi Bocconi in Milan, Italy.
