Mark’s journey into the realm of technology is both inspiring and multifaceted. Graduating from Lake Forest College with a degree in Psychology might seem an unlikely start to a career in tech, but Mark’s determination and curiosity led him to embark on this exciting path back in 2007.
Starting as a sales engineer in a small VAR in the Greater Chicago area, Mark didn’t just wear different hats; he wore them exceptionally well. Over the span of a decade, he progressed through various roles from presales and solutions architecture to program management, ultimately reaching the pinnacle by spearheading the sales engineering group, demonstrating both his adaptability and exceptional leadership abilities.
Venturing further into the tech landscape, Mark honed his expertise at Verizon and Windstream, delving deep into connectivity, SD-WAN, and SASE, further enriching his knowledge and skill set.
