Dr Mark Lovatt is the CEO of Trident Integrity Solutions (www.trident-integrity.com), a leading-edge consultancy firm expert at strengthening integrity infrastructure in organisations across Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region. Prior to leading Trident Integrity, Dr Lovatt was Business Integrity Programme Manager at Transparency International Malaysia, and concurrently, the Managing Director of TI Malaysia’s consultancy arm, TI BIP Malaysia Sdn Bhd. He is an internationally recognised expert in private sector corruption, speaking at conferences across the region.
Dr Lovatt is a thought-leader in the area of business integrity. He is the chief architect of the corporate integrity systems that his company implements, which have succeeded in significantly strengthening corporate governance, and in some cases stopped major leakages for companies grappling with the issue of corruption. His work has been adopted by other Transparency International chapters, particularly in SE Asia, and during his time with TI he was recognised by the movement as one of the global leaders in the area of business integrity. His international work includes the design of the national private sector integrity programme for the Royal Government of Bhutan, and lead consultant in designing the materials and structure of the Business Integrity Network Afghanistan coalition.
He is passionate in his drive towards a business sector free of corruption, and believes that organisations should have well-developed and effective integrity systems, in order to maintain the highest level of corporate governance and good business practice.
Dr Lovatt holds a BA (Hons) in Philosophy & Theology, and a PhD in Philosophical Theology from Nottingham University UK. An experienced businessman, he has worked in IT, business analysis, corporate regulation and business development, primarily in the power & gas sector.
