Mark’s education and career started in suburban Philadelphia. His early twenties were personally rocky and mid-way through the 1980’s he found himself in a terrible situation. His mother had died of cancer and he subsequently realized alcohol and drugs were going to ruin him. He cleaned up (and remains clean and sober today), then started anew at the bottom rung in the sales world; telemarketing. His experience covers the full gamut of sales, marketing, product management, and executive management in his industry.
He has spoken at events throughout the world and has written articles for industry magazines since the 1990’s. In addition to his professional experience and success, he has been married for over 25 years and is the father of five daughters.
