"A cool head and a warm heart."
Check out Mark's blog series: climbing New Hampshire's 4000-footers, and reflecting on a career in development, social justice, conflict and peace-building, and thoughts along the way.
For thirty years, Mark has led and managed complex, international organizations, growing progressively in scale, scope, and responsibility — in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. He is known as a supportive and enabling leader, as a skilled builder of empowered, inspired, and accountable teams in exceptionally-diverse contexts.
His track record, over these years and across these cultures, is clear — systems understanding, sharpening organizational focus and effectiveness, managing innovation, disruption and change, and delivering results. Mark's particular expertise is in strategy development and execution, and in modernizing and aligning organizational systems to strategy: planning and budgeting, human resource management and development, and monitoring and evaluation.
Recently Mark has taken a deep dive into conflict management and dispute resolution — skills increasingly relevant in our social-justice organizations, and in the communities we serve.
