Mark recently left Google to start up a new e-commerce business called Sneaking Duck that will sell funky, fashionable prescription eyewear. He has teamed up with the founders of Shoes of Prey to do this. After more than seven years in online, and seeing many opportunities from within large companies, he is incredibly excited to be building something new himself. Previously, Mark worked at Google for six years in London and Australia, working across EMEA and Asia Pacific. He was a strategy and operations specialist, and worked closely with senior execs across Vertical sales, Agency sales and Local advertising. Other career experiences include Virgin Money, Technoserve (a not-for-profit in Kenya) and McKinsey. When he’s not working, he’s generally found sailing, mountain biking, exploring Sydney’s restaurants or planning a trip somewhere fun. Follow Mark on Twitter or connect with him through LinkedIn
