Mark is a leadership consultant and executive coach who has lived in his clients’ shoes for 25+ years. He was founding CEO of UltraViolet, a joint venture among Hollywood Studios, Tech leaders and major Retailers; advised C-level tech, telecoms and media leaders on strategy as an Oliver Wyman consulting partner; and rose through strategy, marketing, sales and business development in big-corporate and start-up environments. Mark’s career and life arc bring business, psychology, neuroscience, ancient wisdom, and modern wellness into a practical businessperson’s framing and action orientation. He helps leaders and teams recognize blind spots, self-imposed limitations and habitual, constraining ways-of-being and then he designs concrete, action-based plans to help leaders transcend them. Mark has a BA from Brown University and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School.

What led you to Trium?

The opportunity to do work that truly matters, with a great team of like-minded colleagues who combine deep business leadership/advisory experience with an emphasis on humanity and wisdom.

What are you most excited about in your work at Trium?

I’m thrilled to be working with senior leaders on multiple facets of the hardest and most important challenge they face: how to keep evolving the ways they fundamentally think and operate, as the path to the most powerful and sustainable success.

What is your proudest achievement to date?

Throughout my career as a strategy consultant and operating leader, I’m proudest of the positive impact I believe I’ve had on people… teams, peers, clients and customers. The deepest satisfaction I’ve felt in business (and personal life) is knowing other people have felt big benefits from and attach real value to our relationship.

What has been most influential on how you view business and what’s needed to be successful today?

My worldview was most influenced by the gradual realization that intellectual smarts and hard work only take you so far as a leader. As a consulting partner/office head and CEO of two early-stage tech ventures, I learned (sometimes painfully) the bedrock importance of “softer” capacities like ongoing cultivation of self-mastery, fostering true teamwork, and communicating to inspire and empower.

What might people be surprised to learn about you?

I’m a pretty open person so colleagues and clients won’t find many big surprises. But here are a few small things: I deeply appreciate humor and as part of that I tend to remember and catalog jokes; I love classic rock and can usually come up with song lyrics as an analogy for business and leadership situations; I get completely choked up every year watching It’s a Wonderful Life with my family during the holidays.
