In the world of consultants, there are posers and there are those like Mark who came out of industry and are the real deal. He's the proverbial Swiss army knife of business partners who can strategically advise a CPO one minute and then work side-by-side with a buyer to negotiate a deal and button up a tight contract. He embodies ‘been there done that’ and can explain things in plain English, while making the content engaging with war stories and humorous anecdotes.”
