Greenstone Energy today announced that Mark Edghill has been appointed to the position of the company’s Chief Financial Officer.

Greenstone Chief Executive Mike Bennetts said Mark has been appointed after an international search and will come to Greenstone from Australia.

“Mark brings strong international finance skills to Greenstone and I am very pleased to welcome him as a member of the Greenstone Executive team,” he said.

“Mark has particular experience in building businesses through long-term value creation, leading organisational change, process transformation, risk management and governance,” said Mike Bennetts.

“Mark has delivered strong financial results over the course of his career and is particularly passionate about building organisational culture and ensuring organisations are customer-focused.” 


Mark began his career in the UK with Coopers & Lybrand and transferred with them to Sydney in 1988. Mark moved to James Hardie in 1991, working in Sydney, Manila, and Amsterdam within various finance and business development roles over a 10 year period. 

In 2001 Mark moved to Crown Castle, a high-growth wireless communications infrastructure start-up, as Director Finance and Company Secretary. During that time he was part of Crown Castle's growth from their $500 million investment in wireless communication towers. 

In November 2009, Mark took a sabbatical and has been working as a Director for a Brisbane-based start-up, raising seed capital and commercialising emergency shelters for the aid industry.

Mark holds a BSc with Honours from Durham University in England, is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He is moving to Wellington and will start at Greenstone on 11 October.
