Mark is Chief Executive of Helpforce, a charity focussed on accelerating the growth and impact of volunteering in health and care.
He is a Chartered Accountant with a Cranfield MBA.
The first 13 years of his career were spent training and practising as a Chartered Accountant, he then decided to leave the heady world of finance and take a bungee jump into the third sector – a decision he has not regretted for a single minute of his 25 + years in the sector. During this time he has been Chief Executive of the WRVS and the National Autistic Society. He is now leading Helpforce to work in partnership with health and care organisations who want to accelerate the growth and impact of their volunteering.
beIn his spare time, he looks ridiculous in lycra cycling at the weekends, cultivates grey hair at an alarming rate, drinks wine with his wife Amanda and regularly negotiates behaviour related pay awards with his four sons.
