Mark brings over 30 years of business experience to his role as Search Manager for Arris Partners. An Engineering graduate of Virginia Tech, with an MBA from Saint Mary’s College of California, Mark offers expertise in operations, service & support, strategic planning, international R&D / marketing operations, along with social media marketing.
Leading up to his position at Arris Partners, Mark has worked with global Fortune 500 companies (predominantly in the IT/Telecom sector), as well as smaller independent businesses and community nonprofit organizations. His career path has taken him from coast to coast, and then to China, and back again – now calling Raleigh NC home.
Mark believes in building strong relationships with people, who ultimately determine the success of any business. Even in this age of technology, the human element is crucial to meaningful connections and the best outcomes.
Outside of the office, Mark loves giving back to his Raleigh community. He enjoys his volunteer work promoting Shop Local Raleigh (serving as Board President, and creating Raleigh’s annual Brewgaloo festival). For several years, he hosted jazz / blues / funk music shows on public radio. Mark is especially proud of his volunteer work that helped refugees from Asia settle into new homes, learn English, land jobs, and ultimately reunite with their families.
