Founder & Chairman
Mark Fennessy understands what it takes to produce consistently high quality, high performance content. The former CEO of production and content powerhouse Shine, he has overseen an extraordinary portfolio of TV franchises and super brands that cross genres - from blockbuster unscripted hits to critically acclaimed (and wildly popular) scripted series.
Ranked No. 1 in the Australian Financial Review's Cultural List, he sits at the top of the mountain when it comes to creators and suppliers of premium content. A respected producer and entrepreneur he has an enviable record of steering independent production groups to enormous success. From boutique indie label Crackerjack to the formation of Fremantle Media to launching Shine Australia with Elizabeth Murdoch and then overseeing the local merger of Endemol and Shine - it's an extraordinary story of accomplishment.
In 2017 Mark was awarded an Order of Australia recognising him for his significant service to the broadcast industry as an entrepreneur, innovator and production executive.
