Mark Jewell is a Non-Executive Director of Oliver Hume Corporation with more than 25 years' experience across all aspects of property development including planning and approvals, sales and marketing, construction, management, strategy and finance.

He is one of Australia’s most experienced and respected property industry executives and directors and has held a number of senior positions in listed Australian development companies. His experience covers the gamut of property development from small-scale land subdivisions to large scale, iconic apartment developments.

In recent years, his comprehensive experience has extended from property development operations through to high level corporate functions including strategy, capital and debt management, governance and risk management.

A chartered accountant, he commenced his career in Australia with real estate group PRD after emigrating from South Africa. His expertise in the financial aspects of property quickly extended to other operational matters, with a particular focus on sales and marketing. He ultimately became the general manager of PRD Realty Queensland.

He served in senior executive roles with a range of companies before retiring as an executive director of listed property group FKP Group in 2013 to become a professional Director. He was appointed as Chairman of VillaWorld Limited and became a Non-Executive Director of Oliver Hume Corporation in late 2013. He is also a Non-Executive Director of Oliver Hume Property Funds.

Prior to his role with FKP, he spent many years as executive director and Chief Operating Officer of Sunland Group Australia where he was responsible for spearheading the company's Australian operations, and was closely involved in the development of the iconic Palazzo Versace hotel and Q1 supertower on the Gold Coast.

Mr Jewell holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Chartered Accountant (South Africa) qualification. He is also a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).
