"Mark was one of my leaders. We faced an Operation that was too cost heavy, couldn’t ship on time and was costing the company market share. Mark took ownership over the challenges we faced in our supply chain. He led efforts to re-organize and structure our vendors and supply chain. He created new sourcing models and led efforts with Design Engineering to apply ‘design for sourcing’ approaches resulting in substantial material cost reductions. Mark applied innovative approaches from 3PL, Lean Delivery approaches and outsourcing to lower cost providers both in North America and Far East. This helped us achieve a very quick turn-around to profitability. Mark also provided me a versatility to manage multiple functions and always displayed a strong team-player character."
