Our People

Mark Greaves

Chair of Finance and Estates Committee, Member of Remuneration Committee and Employment Committees

Mark is a Corporate Finance partner at Francis Clark, where he is also responsible for developing their international network PKF and leading an internal change programme. His international duties have included arranging trade visits to China and building close links with Australian, European and American firms. Mark is also a non-executive director at Delt Shared Services, a back office shared services business jointly owned by Plymouth City Council and New Devon CCG.

Mark has advised on many high profile deals such as the Management Buy-Out of Sutton Seeds and Plessey Semi-Conductors. He also led the sale of Goonvean’s clay operations to Imerys SA. He has a particular interest in the creative sector, food and drink, consumer branded retail and hospitality. He helped South West media group, Bray Leino, on numerous deals and advised on the sale of the skincare brand business Dr Organic to Holland & Barrett.

Unusually for the 1980s, Mark entered the accountancy profession without a degree, only later studying for an MBA from Warwick University. He therefore is a keen advocate for lifelong learning and equality in education.

Mark is a keen traveller and has been to many places around the world from South Africa to Norway and Japan to Alaska. He also managed to walk across Beirut in the relatively short period of peace the city enjoyed in 2005. Mark is also a keen theatre and cinema fan, regularly attending productions in Plymouth but also in London and abroad in New York and San Francisco.
