With over 25 years’ experience as a marketing and business strategist, Mark has spent his entire career championing his clients’ goals. His extensive experience serving Fortune 500 companies and for-profit organizations has led him to passionately use those branding and marketing tactics to bolster exposure and awareness of organizations like GRM who are working tirelessly to make the world a better place.

Mark has a PhD in Branding, MA in Leadership & Change, MBA in Corporate Finance, BFA in Industrial Design, and is a veteran, having served in the Army National Guard for 9 years as a Combat Engineer.

When he isn’t challenging the status quo in the branding and marketing world, he’s likely absorbing a few books at a time, or, ideally, sailing with his wife Bethany and their 5 adult children.


We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
