Mark spent 25 years working at boutique and global ad agencies such as Fallon and McCann in many roles ranging from EVP, Chief of Staff, Director of Business Development, Director of Account Management and Director of Learning. In 2004, he started Strong Training & Coaching to help people get strong at work, so they can be strong in life.
He takes an action-centered approach to coaching & training, providing clients with tools they can use now to maximize their impact. While Mark is serious about delivering results, he doesn’t miss an opportunity to infuse humor into his engagements knowing that ultimately, if it’s not fun, it’s forgettable.
As a coach and trainer, Mark has significant credentials from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), Corporate CoachU and The Institute of Coaching at McLean/Harvard Medical School, and is a certified practitioner of DiSC.
Mark’s favorite quote is “Always be learning”. In another life, Mark is a comedic actor. In this life, Mark calls Minneapolis home.
