Special Ops Veteran, Resilience Expert, CEO and Entrepreneur
MARK WALES – Special Ops Veteran, CEO and Entrepreneur

Mark’s 16-year career with the Australian Military and six-year career with Australian Special forces has taken him to the most remote of places overseas. As a Troop Commander in charge of 30 elite soldiers, Mark’s role was to lead combat missions deep behind enemy lines. At the end of his career, he had completed 10 tours of duty to Afghanistan, Iraq, East Timor, Lebanon and the Solomon Islands.

Mark’s successful recovery and growth led him to embark on a high-profile career in business. He studied with the Wharton School of Business – before joining the elite consulting firm McKinsey & Company in New York City. Mark was listed in Wharton’s prestigious 40 under 40 awards for business excellence.

In 2017, Mark was a popular contestant in Australian Survivor, and will be starring in the TV show The World’s Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji 2019 (screening on Amazon Prime Video worldwide, 14 Aug 2020).  Hosted by Bear Grylls, The World’s Toughest Race is an 11-day expedition that pushes competitors to their physical and emotional limits.

He is the founder of a tough-luxury ecommerce brand called Kill Kapture, and now works as a corporate speaker training thousands of clients each year in Australia and the U.S.A. Mark is also an author releasing his memoir ‘Survivor’ in May 2021. Mark’s wife is Samantha Gash, an elite endurance athlete, and they have a 3-year-old son called Harry.
