Mark describes his work style as "a leader, collaborator, psychologist, mentor and motivator, all within the context of a strong work ethic." He’s somewhat joking about the psychologist reference, but it speaks to his broad role as the Director of Workplace. In his 33 years of industry experience, Mark applies his award-winning design, management and leadership skills to guide companies through a rich discovery process that results in exciting and innovative workplaces that are designed to align with their business goals. He frequently contributes his expertise as a presenter at national conferences, including Tradeline, NeoCon, International Facility Management Association (IFMA), CoreNet, NAIOP and others. As an editor to the American Institute of Architects Handbook of Professional Practice, Mark has collaborated to help craft some key industry practice guidelines. In his free time, Mark likes to work on his golf game—come to think of it, another pursuit that combines skills and psychology.
