Martin Crawford.

Co-Founder & Executive Chairman

Martin is one of the most experienced corporate services executives in Asia. He was the Group CEO of Vistra from 2009 to 2018, where he built the firm from a small regional player to be among the top three global corporate services providers, expanded the geographic reach from five countries to 46 jurisdictions, executed 35 M & A deals, and achieved outstanding equity returns for three successive PE owners.

Prior to Vistra, Martin spent over 15 years leading medium and large companies across the Asia-Pacific region in offshore financial services, foreign exchange and asset management, with a particular emphasis on PE-owned portfolio companies. Martin spent his early career in Australia in a number of sales and marketing roles before moving to Europe to further his academic studies. He worked with strategy consulting firm Bain & Company in London before relocating back to Australia where he spent seven years managing the institutional funds management division at MLC, one of the largest fund managers in Australasia. Prior to his move to Asia, he was Regional Managing Director (Asia-Pacific) for Travelex PLC, the world’s largest non-bank foreign exchange specialist.

Martin holds an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of South Australia, and an MBA from IMD in Switzerland.
