Working experience and occupation Mr Mark Christopher Greaves ("Mr Greaves") joined investment bank N M Rothschild & Sons, spending 25 years with the group based in London (1977-1980 and 1986/7)), Singapore (1980-1986 and 1992-2002) and Hong Kong (1987-1992). During this time, he was head of the group's business in South-East Asia for 10 years, including acting as Chairman of the Asian Regional Credit and Equity Committees. He sat on the board of all the group's affiliates in Asia, including Bumiputra Merchant Bankers Berhad in Malaysia where he was a director from 1996 to 2001, and helped to found the group's operations in China and Indonesia, which are now among its most successful offices in the region. He was for many years a Council Member of the Singapore Investment Banking Association and was instrumental in steering Rothschilds' independent M&A advisory business into the top-ranked position in the Singapore market.

At the end of 2002, Mr Greaves left Rothschilds and set up Anglo FarEast Group, a Singapore-based consultancy specializing in advisory assignments involving Asia and Europe. Among his clients was Hanson Capital, the investment vehicle of Lord Hanson, one of the UK’s top businessmen and entrepreneurs.

In 2004, Mr Greaves became Chief Executive of Hanson Capital, with a mandate to develop the family’s presence in the financial sector and its investments in Asia. He implemented a strategic plan involving the development of a financial services execution platform, the creation of a private equity activity with an emphasis on Asia and the restructuring of the family's investments and operating businesses into a formal corporate structure.

Mr Greaves is now Deputy Chairman of Hanson Family Holdings (www.hancap.com), the holding company chaired by The Hon Robert Hanson which brings together the family’s interests in three principal areas: M&A, corporate advisory and securities (Hanson Capital/Strand Hanson), direct investment and private equity (Hanson Family Investors/Hanson China Partners) and transportation/industrial (Hanson Logistics). He is also a trustee for certain of the family’s private interests.

In addition to his roles with Hanson, Mr Greaves is non-executive Chairman of London-listed Sinosoft Technology plc, the e-government services and systems integration specialist headquartered in Nanjing, China, and a corporate governance consultant to the Board of Hong Kong-listed Gome Electrical Appliances, the largest electrical and electronics retail group in China. In Singapore, alongside Anglo FarEast Group where his focus continues to be on special situations involving the UK and Asia, Mr Greaves is a director of Octtane, the branded entertainment and media company behind a number of innovative projects.
