Chief Financial Officer
Marc is a chartered accountant who is ultimately responsible for the management of Safika’s finances. He is a shareholder and director of Safika Holdings and sits on the boards of some of Safika’s investment partners. He began working with Safika soon after its inception and has played a central role in the company’s success and growth.
In January 2011, Marc opened a Safika office in Melbourne, Australia and he has spearheaded Safika’s strategy of expanding into the Pacific Rim ever since.
In addition to playing an important role on Safika’s executive and investment committees, Marc actively seeks and initiates acquisitions, and is involved in every stage of a transaction – from the initial assessment of viability, through to determining the most effective structure from an operational, legal and tax perspective. In line with Safika’s policy of hands-on investment, Mark remains intensely involved once a transaction is concluded. He is responsible for monitoring all Safika’s investments on a monthly basis, ensuring good corporate governance, investigating and facilitating ways to add value to investments and seeking synergies between entities.
He is a former chairperson of the Speech and Language Impaired Centre in South Africa and a former member of the Board of Governors of the Bellavista School in Johannesburg.
Marc is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, the largest professional body of management accountants in the world.
