Hugh
Marks

CEO

With a style that is miles from the traditional image of Australia’s brash media tycoons, unassuming lawyer Marks is about to become head of the country’s top media group. The July 2018 announcement that commercial TV operator Nine is to acquire newspaper group Fairfax caught nearly everybody by surprise and caused outrage among those worried about media pluralism Down Under. But the deal makes business sense at a time when digital players are changing the landscape on the continent. And Marks makes sense as well because of his
reputation for being fair-minded, good at delegating and extremely sharp. He’ll need all those strengths as he attempts to merge two very different business cultures, but few doubt that he is capable.
