Founder - EnvoyGolf
Mark is one of two founding directors of Ellington Savage, www.ellingtonsavage.com.au, an international search firm established in 1993.
Playing golf for more years than he cares to remember he is a member of one of the worlds top ranked courses, New South Wales Golf Club at La Perouse. For over 30 years he has been lucky to enjoy the course and its spectacular views most weekends.
This interest in golf and membership at New South Wales Golf Club led to his applying his broader recruitment industry experience within the golf industry recruiting the then titled Green Keeper in 1989.
Since then, he has been involved in every senior appointment at New South Wales Golf Club; three General Managers, three Golf Managers/Director of Golf, Head Professional, a couple of Head Chefs, F&B Manager, Finance Manager/Assistant General Manager and after 29 years the current Course Superintendent.
Through that work Mark was referred into other clubs and has had the privilege of recruiting some of the most senior roles of many great clubs in Sydney; The Australian, Manly, Bonnie Doon and Royal Sydney. Most of this work has involved tapping into, and recruiting out of offshore markets in North America, the UK, Europe, South Africa and Asia.
This international involvement parallels the work involved in the core Ellington Savage practice, which has sourced talent out of international markets for some of Australia's highest profile organisations in a range of sectors.
It is this exposure to the international golfing industry which led to solving specific golf industry resourcing issues from a global, cross border perspective.
