TESTIMONIALS

 I have worked with Mark in his position of both General Manager of Elan and CEO of Zacco (former Shieldmark). We have worked closely on the restructuring of Zacco before the company was sold to NLO (Nederlands Octrooi bureau). Mark is a sharp, intelligent person with a sharp business focus and a good eye for people and the human factor. Because of his great communication skills he has the ability to get the best out of a team and the people therein with the business goals in mind.
