Mark is an infrastructure specialist with 25 years’ experience working across various state government entities, including NSW Treasury and Transport for NSW. Specialising in infrastructure finance, PPPs and unsolicited proposals, he provides financial and commercial advisory services and manages complex projects and negotiations on behalf of his clients.
Mark has played key lead, advisory and management roles in the origination and execution of an array of high-value, high-risk public infrastructure projects and transactions. Drawn to the industry by his broad interest in infrastructure development, he enjoys being ‘in the thick of things’ as an infrastructure transaction moves towards execution. He has developed a strong track record of delivering successful outcomes in multi-stakeholder negotiations with complex and challenging environments. Career highlights include the monetisation of the M7 Motorway Base Rent, which won the 2016 National Infrastructure Award for Financial Excellence. The first of its kind in Australia, this innovative transaction facilitated timely funding for State’s contribution to the NorthConnex project in a structure that helped preserve the State’s AAA credit rating.
