“I had the pleasure of meeting Mark early on in my career at Humana, and from the get go, it was clear to me that he possessed all of the tools necessary to reach the executive level for any organization. During the last few months of my stay in corporate finance, I had the opportunity to work directly with Mark as he assumed CEO duties for CAC Florida Medical Centers. During that time, I was thoroughly impressed by Mark’s ability to see the big picture, quickly identify the main parts of the system, and to pinpoint opportunities to remove waste and improve efficiencies. Mark is an excellent transformational leader, an elite level professional, and a big asset to any team fortunate enough to have him. Expect exceptional results when Mark is on the assignment.

Scott Crane
Humana

“Mark led a team in 2008 that tackled a complex, strategic business issue for our division. Working across functional groups, he guided a seemingly impossible initiative to a business result few deemed possible. Mark – your unique combination of brainpower, work experience, Six Sigma and project management skills, ability to influence and align others, and your professionalism make you a special person and strategic resource. You inspire others – thank you for the great person you are and the positive impact you have on your colleagues and company. I salute you! Salud!

Ben St. Clair
Humana

“I had the pleasure of working with Mark when he was Director of the Wholly Owned Affiliated Provider Medical Centers at Humana in South Florida. Mark’s ability to form relationships and work effectively within a matrixed organization is unsurpassed. He really knows how to remove barriers and get the job done. You can be sure that if Mark is on (or is leading) your team the project will get done and you will accomplish your goals.
