Pacific Edge Appoints Mark Green as Independent Director

Pacific Edge is pleased to welcome Mark Green as an Independent Director, effective from 10 May 2021.

Mark is an experienced corporate finance professional, with approximately 25 years of experience in the Australasian capital, corporate and financial markets. He was an Executive Director for Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs where he worked for nearly 20 years and has been involved in many large prominent New Zealand transactions including the IPOs of Meridian, Mighty River Power and Vector. Mark is a Director of a number of entities including being Chair of Astrolab VC Investment Committee and a Director of Mariposa Holdings (a large charitable organisation).

Mark said: “Pacific Edge is an exciting New Zealand company seeking to lead the way in cancer diagnostics. It is a company that has sought to protect its intellectual property and to add value not only to its shareholders and other corporate stakeholders but also to New Zealand. It is a privilege to be involved with such a company.”

Chair of Pacific Edge, Chris Gallaher, commented: "We are very pleased to welcome Mark to the Board which continues the Board rejuvenation process that we have underway. He has significant capital markets and corporate finance experience gained over a long career with Goldman Sachs and has recently returned from Tokyo where his family was based for the last two and a half years.

Mark's appointment fills a skills need identified by the Board and he will be a strong contributor to both the Board and the company as we continue on our growth pathway.”

Mark Green has been appointed by the current Pacific Edge Directors, as permitted under Pacific Edge’s constitution. He will hold office until Pacific Edge’s 2021 Annual Meeting at which time he will offer himself for election by shareholders. The Board has determined that Mark is an Independent Director.
