Mark has been the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD)’s Chief Economist since February 2019. He writes a regular economic update for AICD members as well as a monthly column in Company Director magazine. You can also hear from him on the AICD’s weekly Dismal Science podcast.

Mark has more than three decades of experience tracking the international and Australian economies. He has worked as an economist at the Bank of England (where he covered international debt and finance), JP Morgan (where he was responsible for the bank’s economic coverage of Emerging Europe) and –  after moving to Australia in 1999 – Export Finance Australia (where he focused on sovereign, economic and political risk in East Asia and beyond).  He was then appointed as the inaugural Director of the Lowy Institute’s International Economy Program, where he wrote on geo-economics and the forces shaping the global economy. Before joining the AICD, Mark was Chief Economist and later Head of Research at the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), monitoring Australia’s position in international business, trade, investment, and tourism.
