Mark Taylor

Mark Taylor is the Grandson of Harry Caprari, who until his passing in 2011 was a staunch supporter of The Prospect Heritage Trust. Three generations of Harry’s family had operated the Prospect Post Office for seventy nine years.

Mark Taylor was born and raised in Old Toongabbie, playing cricket and soccer for the Winston Hill Bears and attending Model Farms and James Ruse Agricultural High Schools.

 Mark’s father, a former Acting NSW Police Commissioner, instilled in his children the benefits of hard work and a good education.  Following his father’s example, Mark earned a Bachelor’s degree and was admitted to the Supreme Court of NSW as a legal practitioner.  He recently completed 25 years of policing service and is a senior officer in the Police Prosecutions Branch.  Mark has been awarded the Centenary Medal, the National Medal and a Commissioner’s Commendation.

 A strong commitment to family underpins Mark’s daily life. Petrina, a primary school teacher at Winston Hills and Mark have been married for over 15 years.  They have two young children who love swimming, learning to cook and cheering on the Parramatta Eels, GWS Giants and the Western Sydney Wanderers.
