Mark joined the Leadership Squad in October 2023 as Chief Sustainable & Sourcing Officer. Mark started out at The Warehouse Hastings when he was just 19 years old, as a casual before joining the fast-track management programme at our Napier store. Mark rose to Assistant Manager in Napier and, after finishing his accounting degree, he moved to SSO where he worked on operational efficiency projects, as a buyer, and later as General Manager of Home. Mark left the Group for a while before coming back to lead our hardgoods sourcing team and since November 2019 has lead our global sourcing team as Executive General Manager.
The progress Mark and his team have made with suppliers, ethical sourcing and growing our range of sustainable products has been significant. Mark is based in our Chinese sourcing office in Shanghai, and will visit New Zealand often
