Mark joins the Club with over 30 years’ experience in the media, marketing and ecommerce industries, having worked with some of Australia's best-known companies and brands.

On the field Mark represented Randwick in both grade and colts from 1984-1988 and played in Colts premiership teams in 1984 and 1985.

Mark stated “I have had a lifelong passion for Randwick Rugby and been involved with it in so many guises, so this role is a perfect fit at this stage of my life. Randwick is an iconic club and brand, so this is a unique opportunity for me to lead and best position it for future success on and off the field."
Mark will commence with Randwick Rugby in this role on Monday September 2, 2019.
