"If you’re looking for someone to lead your creative team with passion and vision, Mark’s your guy. He finds the right balance of doing what’s right for his clients to move the business, but champions against mediocrity and defends the integrity of the creative. He’s always done strong work for McDonald’s, and his reel is full of stellar work for other brands."
