Mark founded childcare software company Xplor in 2016, after realising an opportunity to have a powerful impact on education, through improving software services. Xplor grew quickly and TSG acquired the Melbourne-based start-up in late 2019, with Mark joining the TSG Executive team. In line with TSG’s global growth plans, bringing Xplor into the TSG family has already accelerated Mark’s vision to provide the world’s best childcare and early learning solutions to service leaders, educators and families, around the globe. Mark is well-known for his engaging, down to earth leadership, and has had great success uniting and inspiring teams to pursue ambitious goals. Before entering the Education sector, Mark was part of the Australian Army, where he worked as a Forward Observer, and as part of the Australian Psychology Corps. Mark lives in Melbourne with his family and in his spare time, he buys more books than he can finish, signs up for more online courses than he can complete and fundamentally believes that if you’re not learning new things, you stop doing great and useful things.
