London-based Mark is a long-standing retail and real estate specialist and journalist. And when he’s not musing on the future prospects, or lack of future prospects, covering European retailers for The Robin Report he is also editor-in-chief of the publications for MAPIC in Cannes and the city-trotting annual World Retail Congress. On those occasions when his hands are pried away from his laptop, you might also find him speaking or moderating at events or contributing to the odd podcast or video. Away from work, Mark is married to Judi and has three children, with the two eldest currently at university, plus a less academically minded dog. He is also an ardent Chelsea fan, very keen traveler, a vegetarian since when it wasn’t trendy and is still untrendy because you now need to be vegan, an enthusiasm-over-ability soccer player and a killer cocktail maker.
