Current Role

Mark is Chairman of the Advisory Board, he is considered a thought leader in talent acquisition across emerging markets, and specialises in C-suite roles, CEO succession, and Board development across multiple sectors.  Mark is a firm believer and advocate of 'Care' within executive search, and passionate that relationships made are for life.  Nomadic by nature and having lived in seven countries over the last ten years,  Mark is happiest whilst having a meal, a coffee or the occasional pint of Murphy's talking to business leaders across the world.

Experience

Mark reports (with a slight chuckle) that he has been involved in executive search since April Fool’s Day 1999. During his career he has placed over 500 executives and he works across all of SpenglerFox’s practice groups.  Mark began his career at Heineken; serving the company in a variety of commercial roles both in Ireland and in Central Europe.  In 1999, he himself was “headhunted” for a job in the executive search sector and has never looked back.

Qualifications

Mark majored in Psychology, Linguistics and Spanish at University College Dublin.  He completed his post-graduate studies in International Marketing.  Prior to his post-graduate studies, he took part in a study programme at Spain’s University of Santiago de Compostela through the EU’s Erasmus programme.

Career Challenges

He says his biggest career challenge has been ensuring that his global teams consistently focus on the client and on candidate experience, while driving the highest level of quality talent searches.

Motivation

Mark says that he guides his career by the creed: we need to be too hungry to fail and to value always the trust put in us to deliver. He comments that his wife has been the biggest inspiration in his career; noting that she has always provided the support and balanced he needs for his chaotic life. Mark says that she is totally honest, loving and driven and that he learns from her every day.
