Born and bred in the area, Mario is as local as it gets.

His passion is to help and encourage people grow professionally and emotionally. Mario grew up as a first generation Australian from an Italian family and was taught from an early age ‘if it was going to be it was up to me’.

Mario attended St Columba’s Primary in Wilston and then St Columbans High School in Albion. Mario’s three children have also graduated from St Columba’s Primary with the youngest only starting highschool in 2019!

With a passion for business, Mario studied an undergraduate degree in business at QUT and was immediately offered a role with CSR. This took him to Sydney where he worked in a number of Product and Brand Manager roles before his calling for the Brisbane lifestyle drew him back home.

In 2002, Mario made a career change and started with Clark Real Estate as a Sales Person. He gained his Gold Badge Sales award from the Pittard training group in 2006. In 2008 Mario and his wife Annette bought the business from Annette’s mother, Ruth Clark.

Mario is happily married with 3 children that keep him and his wife in the fast lane of sports, theatre and other activities.

Mario also holds a board position with the Brisbane City Football Club and has been playing soccer with the club since 1978!
