Principal + Managing Director
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 CEO, marketing, CSR and foundation leaders of some of the world’s most powerful brands to craft impact-driven strategies, strong programs and memorable stories.
Mark is at the forefront of the corporate social impact and marketing fields. He 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. He has written for Harvard Business Review and Boston College’s Corporate Citizen Magazine. Most recently, Mark and co-author Nikki Korn published “Evolution, Innovation and Best Practices in Corporate Social Impact,” a chapter within Springer’s Managing for Social Impact guide book for practitioners.
Mark’s experience spans the corporate, nonprofit, government and consulting sectors. He kicked-off his career by helping ignite the corporate volunteerism movement at New York Cares and developing community relations 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 he built and drove its Cause Branding and corporate responsibility practice. He is a graduate of Brown University and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
Mark loves teaching workshops and webinars for executives with the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, ACCP, Engage for Good, Conference Board and leading universities. You will always find Mark ready to “scrub in” for the next challenge.
