Although I had worked with Mark from from the peripherie on the Hollywood Video account, I first really met Mark during a Smart & Final Broker Network Powow.

I knew I liked him when he looked over at me about halfway through the meeting and mouthed “this is bull shit”.

Mark is a consumate professional, deal maker, cut to the chase guy, and is excellent in• managing a team of deal makers • analizing a market •being effective but brief on the phone • being ruthelessly honest when needed • and absolutely hilarious to reminisce with.

Mark has worked with McDonald’s, Jack In the Box, Blockbuster, helped run the show at Hollywood Video, Founded The Standard Group with Branson, Joe & Lew, Built single tenant developments, Rolled out the revamped Ultimate Electronics before it imploded, and is now Senior Manging Director at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Tom & Jerry.
