Mark comes to Michigan with two years of experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica, and an additional two years as a financial analyst at Citibank. Mark is especially interested in the circular economy, waste management, and industrial ecology. Simply put, how can we create and consume products so that at the end of their life cycle, we produce as limited of a waste footprint as possible? Mark studied finance and Spanish at Texas A&M University and likes college football, cycling, chess, and playing soccer (usually on the intramural “B” team, if there is no “C” team.)
Mark is excited to be a CPO +LAB Fellow and to learn the best practices of organizational behavior. He hopes to apply the lessons learned here to become a better leader and to practice creating organizational cultures that people embrace and want to be a part of.
