I’m Mark, my background has been within Sales and customer services for the last 22 years, where I sought after providing the very best customer experience possible to my customer or client. I started my working life as a Sales consultant at Europe’s largest telecommunication retailer and then progressed into the management for the last 5 years where I had the pleasure of managing and training different people from all walks of life to become successful sales professionals.
For 9 years I was a technology Recruiter, my recruitment journey started at the height of the 2008 global recession, crazy some would say! However, I have always enjoyed a challenge and recruitment certainly gave me that. It has been instrumental to my personal development, helped build my business acumen and has been a great vehicle for me to utilize my strength while working with people from different cultures, educational and professional standing.
As a recruiter, my main focus was business development and identifying the right SAP talent across the Nordic region. My portfolio grew over time, which took my business globally; Belgium, Germany, Israel, China and the USA to mention a few.
As my career progressed I wanted to be more aligned with my main drivers in supporting and developing others and myself to reach our full potential, my role as Learning & Development professional provides me with exactly that.
In 2015 I invested in myself to go back to studying and took up a distance learning course in L&D with CPID, which then lead me to start my career as an L&D professional and coach to help me implement a learning and development culture within a business of 120 people supporting beginners to Team leaders, this is where my true passion lies. Observing and enjoying the journey of all my trainee’s is a great feeling of satisfaction when learning finally turns into results.
When I am not working I’m a dad to 4 beautiful, wonderful and energetics children (Yes, 4 children!) I’m a thespian at heart and graduated from Drama school so going to the theatre and cinema is a main hobby of mine, I also enjoy a box set or 2. I’m a keen fitness freak, into CrossLifting and obstacle races. As a proud Brummie I support the greatest football club in the world, the mighty Aston Villa.
I joined Signify Technology for its inspiring story and shared a passion to succeed and deliver excellences.
