The Story

Mark Maloney is one of Australia’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs. Mark worked
15-years in investment markets, having held senior management positions with JPMorgan and
Goldman Sachs in London and Sydney. Most notably, he led The Mac Group from being a
private family company to one of Australia’s best-performing top 200 ASX-listed companies.
Mark’s story doesn’t end there, however. After his huge success with The Mac, Mark felt as if
he’d lost his purpose, and so he set about trying to rediscover his direction. As of today, Mark
works with Tulla Investment Group and puts money into what he calls ‘soulpreneurs’ – founders
who are out to make a positive change in the world and who believe in their business with all
their soul.
