After a 16-year tenure, the founding family of the business desired an exit strategy, and Mark led the process to position, market, and sell the business to meet the shareholders’ goals. At the end of 2016, the business was sold to a public company in the packaging industry.
Mark joined an equipment manufacturing business late 2018 for the primary purpose of creating and then executing an exit strategy for the shareholders. Despite the pandemic delay, the shareholders’ goals were achieved at the end of 2021.
Mark is proud that for both business transactions, the shareholders’ expectations were not only met, but exceeded.
Together, Mark and his wife Leslie have five daughters and one granddaughter. They live in Hilton Head Island, S.C. where they enjoy the outdoor coastal lifestyle, beauty of the island, and times spent with family and friends.
