Mark was born in the Central Victorian town of Castlemaine and lived there during his general school years. He moved to Ballarat for University and undertook the first 3 years of an Electrical / Electronic Engineering Degree course before realising that “Sales” was the career area which excited him the most.
Mark started his sales life with a small lighting firm in Melbourne before moving to the large international company, General Electric. After many successful years, he needed a new challenge and moved to another large national organisation, Visy. In 2006, Mark moved back to Castlemaine for a more relaxed lifestyle while continuing his sales duties in Melbourne.
Whilst at Visy Mark developed his interest in Detailing cars and motorbikes, which led him to a range of products from the United Kingdom called “Briliant”. After becoming the Australian Distributor for Briliant and operating it as a weekend hobby business, Mark was given the opportunity to purchase the UK operations from the owner who wished to retire.
Following this purchase, Mark moved with his very supportive wife (Linda) and daughter (Taneesha) to Woodvale just out of Bendigo and has now set up a factory in Eaglehawk to manufacture the polishes and other detailing products.
