Graduating from Bristol University, Marcus began his career qualifying as a chartered accountant. He then joined EY where he quickly developed a reputation for being a “fixer” and was successful in driving greater efficiency in a number of roles including that of Director of Recruitment. He later sat on a taskforce for the merger between Arthur Young and Ernst & Whinney, giving rise to Ernst & Young.
Entering the world of real estate, he was part of a small team that transformed London’s commercial centre including Broadgate, Ludgate and Stockley Park, borrowing over £6Bn.
A series of successful entrepreneurial ventures followed including; accelerating a small tech company’s growth from a staff of 2 people to over 120 and bringing “Lazy Town” – the internationally renowned children’s programme, from Iceland to the UK.
Marcus is passionate about creating better opportunities for young people and transforming aspirations and achievement, largely driven by challenges he has had to overcome in his own life. This led to him founding Bryanston Square, bringing together a team of dedicated individuals to assist in bidding for highly competitive public procurement school projects. The team were successful in winning 41 out of 46 projects with a value in excess of £5Bn. Since 2007, Bryanston Square’s focus has been developing students and teachers, enhancing learning spaces and leading change in education.
