This job gives us at Nous the chance to work with some of Australia’s best leaders and most important organisations contributing to the well being and prosperity of our community and our environment.
Mark brings to his consulting practice many years of public policy and strategy experience at the highest levels of government, as a senior public servant and consultant. He has advised heads of government and various Commonwealth and state ministers.
Mark advises public and private sector clients in a broad range of public policy and strategy areas with a strong focus on public management, education policy and water, environmental and climate policy.
Mark was executive director in the Victorian Premiers Department under Premiers Bracks and Kennett. In 2006 and 2007 he was executive director in the Office of Water in the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment. Prior to Nous in early 2008 Mark was a senior adviser on tertiary education and inter-governmental relations to the Deputy Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. Mark also has significant business experience as a developer of innovative, sustainable buildings.
Mark tries to spend as much time as he can with his partner Sue and their two girls. He shares a passion with them for music of all kinds (with a special weakness for country music), plays a little golf (although he is obsessed by it), gets to gym and yoga class a fair bit, and spends time restoring an acre of land around the family’s Shoreham beach-house to indigenous bush.
