I’m a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), practitioner member of the Financial Planning Association, an Affiliate of the Australian Insurance Institute and hold a BA from Latrobe University and more recently completed an Executive Education Strategic Leadership program at Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
I am an authorised representative and senior financial adviser within VGB Wealth.
Prior to joining VGB Wealth in 2021, I was director and financial adviser within my own business Vertex Group, co-founded in 2002. Before this I ran my own financial planning practice established in 1996 which later operated as part of Vertex Group. My early experience in financial services started in 1987 with National Mutual in their Corporate Superannuation division, both in head office and their Victorian Branch, followed by 6 years at GIO Australia as a Financial Planner.

Mark has been my financial planner for the last 25 years. He is very approachable, has a great knowledge and understanding of the financial planning industry and very quick to communicate. I sincerely appreciate Mark's advice over the past 25 years in assisting with my financial planning and wealth creation.
Having known Mark for over two decades, Mark has always been proactive in providing advice for myself and my family. Having resided outside of Australia for a number of years, its not always a top of mind topic for me to keep up with latest statutory regulations , trends and what's best for my situation. This is where Marks excels and his subject matter expertise is second to none and his ability to articulate in simplistic terms for the lay person is an admirable quality. Mark never forgets and with his personal attention to detail I know I am in safe hands and have plenty of evidence to support Marks authentic approach to protect and and continually improve my situation. This has led to Mark exceeding my expectations with his above and beyond attitude. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark's services and feel grateful to have been introduced to Mark all those years ago
I have been an ongoing client of Marks for a number of years. Recently Mark helped me close my SMSF and transition to a Retail fund. This was a fairly complex process but it was handled extremely well, Mark clearly outlined the procedures for me and always followed up to make sure the transition was seamless. Thank you!
Trustworthy, effective listener and communicator, professional, pragmatic, and flexible. This is how I experienced Mark when providing me with expert advice on superannuation and life insurance. Mark takes the time to explain, to a degree of detail that you need, and will lead you through the process at a pace that is comfortable to you. I would recommend Mark to anyone seeking similar financial advice.
I have been a client of Mark for over 10 years and found Mark to diligent, knowledgeable and very ethical with his advice over the years. I would not hesitate in recommending Mark to anyone seeking Financial advice.
