Mark has been recruiting top talent in the high tech and consumer electronics industries for thirty four years over which time he has earned a reputation for identifying and securing that one great executive for any given position.
Prior to joining Ward Howell Mark founded his own boutique executive search and advisory firm. Focused on partnering with venture capital investors since 2002, his experience includes recruiting Board Director, C-level (CEO, CFO, CMO, CTO) and VP level engagements for the portfolio companies of leading venture capital firms.
Prior to his focus on the venture industry, Mark spent nine years as Managing Director of another global executive search firm, where he recruited senior management for middle-market companies in the technology and consumer electronics industry.
Earlier, Mark was partner number four at Ramsey Beirne Associates, the leading senior management, high-impact search firm focused on information technology companies. Mark spent several years with RBA in the computer hardware practice, developing clients in the personal computer, consumer electronics, graphics, and network storage arenas.
His experience coupled with a research intensive process offers clients the best of both worlds: access to long-standing relationships with hard-to-reach industry executives combined with a rigorous search methodology that leaves no stone unturned.
