  • Alan Berson

    Executive Coach and author, “Leadership Conversations”

    Mark asks really powerful questions to assist me in focusing on what really matters. He has a great way about him of defusing potential conflict and engaging in conversations no matter how difficult or potentially contentious the subject matter might be. I trust him explicitly both in terms of his being there for me as a trusted advisor and in the quality of his advice.

    Mark has great attention to detail, ability to think both in the Macro and Micro realms at the same time and while applying a strategic approach to problem solving. Among his strengths is the ability to listen intently, process ideas, and ask deeply probing questions to generate viable and impactful ideas.

  • Michelle Crumley

    Mark was instrumental in helping me make some professional decisions as well as a career change. As I was looking to change my focus, increase my impact, and broaden my strategic perspective; Mark assisted me in identifying and verbalizing these desires. Mark helped me build the confidence needed to clearly articulate my accomplishments, desires, strengths and opportunities. Thanks so much Mark, I love my new position!

  • Jillian Hamilton

    Freelance writer and consultant

    Mark’s great at engineering a system to work, and getting clients to a valued end result despite all the various issues and roadblocks that most consultants shrug their shoulders at and say “oh well” at. He has an executive’s vision that guides client delight, staff coaching, strategic planning, and problem solving.

  • Harry Craney

    Former Director, Navy Staff, Director of Management (DNS-3)

    Mark has a proven ability of using his strategic thinking to look ahead and provide keen and effective solutions for business entities important to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) which were under my cognizance. Working with other staffs within the naval operations such as financial, operational readiness, his ability to assimilate and rapidly provide solutions that could quickly be achieved, implemented and sustained is remarkable. For each engagement he looks across the business spectrum and provides a coherent strategy that has benefited the U.S. Navy in innumerable ways. I was most impressed with him from day one and glad that he was a part of the team that drove the business forward successfully and with significant financial savings.

About Mark


My passion is to assist leaders make a distinctive, sustainable social impact—distinctive in that the leader’s organization is making a genuine difference, and sustainable in that the organization will still be around next year to do good.  I have 30-plus years in leadership and management of government, business and information technology efforts including a full career as a US Navy submarine officer, ten years in the corporate workforce, and now as an organizational excellence coach. 

I also practice what I preach—I proudly serve as a volunteer leader for the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), and also as a volunteer caseworker for a military/veteran financial aid organization. To serve you well, I maintain my coach credential (ACC), my Project Management Professional certification (PMP), and continue professional development in facilitation.
