Meet Daran Thomson, the Managing Director of Hallmark Consulting. Daran founded our company with a vision to empower every day Australians to take control of their financial future. It’s a subject he’s deeply passionate about, having seen first-hand the transformation financial stability can make to your lifestyle and wellbeing. Navigating the financial landscape can be daunting, but Daran is a firm believer that a lack of time, resources or knowledge shouldn’t stop you from achieving your ambitions. 

Daran has a diverse career spanning over 20 years in business growth and development. He’s gained experience across a plethora of industries, from tourism to professional sport, retail, government and more. When he stumbled into the world of finance, he found his ‘home’ – which he says makes sense in hindsight due to his inherent interest in economics, trading and investment strategies. Backed with a wealth of knowledge and his innate ability to connect with people of all backgrounds, Daran embarked on his mission to support Australians in realising their financial dreams. 

Today, Hallmark Consulting is driven by a dynamic and adaptive team of passionate consultants, and a network of hand-selected financial experts – working together to ensure you secure a bright financial future.
