Mark is the founder and CEO of Humn and co-founder of two girls. He spent the first 10 years of his career as a solo entrepreneur in South Africa building and growing an ISP, e-commerce shopping engine and payment gateway. After exiting the businesses, Mark went on to build massive complex post-trade matching, settlement and portfolio management systems at marquee investment banks. In 2016, Mark started working on ideas that became Humn, bringing techniques in massive, fast and complex data to large fleets of vehicles, and conceptualising a new way to calculate and price insurance risk in near real time.
In his spare time, Mark spends time with his family, has an intense reading habit, is passionate about environmental issues and has a deep relationship with the ocean. He can generally be found riding a board of some sorts on water in summer, and on snow in winter.
