I had the pleasure of managing Mark as Interim CIO. Though his title was Senior Web Developer Mark functioned as a technology leader at the Director/CTO level. He provided a get it done attitude at the tactical level while still having a vision for the appropriate technology strategy. Mark could be counted on for smart and pragmatic solutions. He was able to direct and motivate people in a challenging environment and maintaining a focus on the appropriate goals. He would be a great addition to any company’s senior technology team. -- Alan Weingarden – Managing Director at Maxwell Partners Consulting
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Mark on two different occasions. Mark’s professionalism and deep knowledge of technology make any project where we work together a success. He has a breadth of understanding of various technologies and architectures and it is this comprehensive knowledge that has allowed him to consistently propose and execute solid solutions.
Mark has an excellent (and difficult to find) blend of business and technical competencies. Whenever I developed something with Mark, his code is well tested, easy to understand, and he is always willing to help a fellow member of the technical team chase down a problem.
As a Director and Project Manager, he has always kept the goals of the business and the customer clear, and kept projects and teams on task and on time. There is never a question of priorities, or plan. He helps stakeholders understand the technical issues with implementing features, and whether there are any trade-offs or compromises because of them.
In both roles, I would say his best strengths are his communication, and the personal interest he takes in the businesses he works for. I have recommended Mark for projects at my job, and have been extremely happy. -- Elliot Betancourt,CTO
Mark was one of my lead contacts on work involving our Company’s Content Management System.

He is a true professional and would be an asset to any high tech team. -- Kenneth Feldt, Web Content Development Professional
Mark is one of the few software engineers that is highly competent in both Microsoft and open-source technologies.

Mark is a rare breed of technologist. Mark has a senior level understanding of the technologies with which he works. I often personally observed him giving guidance and advice to Windows administrators and developers, helping them to overcome technical obstacles in their work. On this level he is a mature professional.
However, the attributes that elevate him above from the crowd have to do with his strategic vision and understanding of the industry. During the time I worked with Mark he ascended from Senior Windows Developer to Director of Windows Development. The momentum for this rise was due in part to his responsibility and accountability in launching a cutting edge Windows hosting product for our company.
His actions caught the favorable attention of the CEO and placed him in a position of paramount importance for the Windows platform and the relationship with Microsoft. His actions were responsible for numerous opportunities for partnership with Microsoft on new product launches.
Mark works tirelessly, creatively and enthusiastically to achieve his goals and I have no doubt will contribute to the same kind of success in any endeavor in which he is involved. -- David Geller – CTO, Social Picnik
