He is passionate about driving value-added results, creating global synergy, and building leaders. Mark has also served as a global board member for WEConnect International, which is consistent with his belief in the value diversity brings to the supply chain. He facilitates supply chain strategy development at the EU & US Federal levels, teaches executive courses at the university level, is broadly published in numerous supply chain & business media, and speaks at conferences worldwide.
