Mark joined DBL at the beginning of 2018, having been a professional rugby player.
He first played rugby at school at Dulwich College and then studied Geography and Business at Nottingham University, where he also played for Nottingham Rugby Club. After graduating, a trial at Northampton Saints resulted in him staying there for six years. He transferred to Sale Sharks in 2011 and he and his family moved to Wilmslow.
On retiring from rugby at the grand old age of 33, Mark taught business studies at Wrekin College in Shropshire and was Director of Rugby. Financial services had always been a profession, which had interested him, and as he had benefited from Dacre’s financial advice himself, he decided to make the career change.
Mark has completed his professional examinations and is now a fully qualified financial adviser. His first hand experience of the issues sports professionals face is invaluable.
He is married with two young daughters and two dogs, all of whom ensure Mark maintains an active lifestyle.
