    More about Steven & brand overview
    Steven Marks: Founder & Global CEO of Guzman y Gomez 

    When New Yorker Steven Marks settled in Australia in 2002, he saw a gap in the Australian market for fresh, fast, delicious Mexican food. He opened his first Guzman y Gomez restaurant in Sydney’s Newtown in 2006 with Co-Founder Robert Hazan. Guzman y Gomez has today grown to more than 125 restaurants in Australia, Tokyo and Singapore; and has more international expansion on the horizon.

    Steven has been passionately involved in every stage of building this rapidly growing business. Guzman y Gomez is reinventing fast food through the quality of its fresh produce; investment in technology, speed of delivery, and the authenticity of the Mexican experience. 

    Steven grew up in New York City, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Economics and worked 10 years in finance (SAC Capital, Cheyne Capital) in the US and London. 

    When Steven relocated to Sydney in 2002, he launched and sold several successful businesses. Today Steven is committed to taking the Guzman y Gomez experience to the world... and reinventing fast food along the way.

    Pass It Back: ChildFund is World Rugby's principal charity partner for Rugby World Cup 2019. ChildFund Pass It Back is an award-winning  sport for development program implemented by ChildFund in developing communities in Asia.

    Kamaishi Rugby Clinic: The All Blacks will be imparting their knowledge and rugby skills to the youth of Kamaishi. This important rugby town is arguably Japan’s ‘spiritual home of rugby’ and this coaching clinic is aimed to support the town in their efforts to rebuild after the Great East Earthquake and who have been busy preparing for the RWC19 matches. The donation will be going to the local economy. Other All Blacks sponsors including AIG and Adidas will also be making large contributions to allow this clinic to happen.
