Transformed by watching his first surgery over thirty years ago, Mark immediately knew that he would never become a doctor. He thus applied his passion for helping people and love of problem-solving towards mobilizing others around critical social issues.
Today, Mark’s clients appreciate his coaching style and confidence as he guides them through business challenges and creates strategies that work. Every day he partners with senior leaders of some of the world’s most powerful brands to craft impact-driven strategies, strong programs and memorable stories.
Mark kicked-off his career by helping ignite the corporate volunteerism movement at New York Cares and developing community programs at Citibank. While at the U.S. Government’s Corporation for National Service, he formed public-private partnerships to support and launch AmeriCorps. Later, Mark became the Executive Vice President of Omnicom’s Cone Communications, where for eight years he built and ran its Cause Branding Practice.
Mark is recognized as an “exemplary leader in corporate responsibility” by Corporate Responsibility Magazine and is the recipient of a 2015 Presidential Points of Light Award for his on-going leadership and commitment to community involvement and local change.
