"Mark's extended EOS model has engaged my leadership team members more fully. This change has allowed me to share the burden that previously rested solely on my own shoulders. He quickly grasped the fundamentals of our business and of our company culture yet his experienced view from an outside perspective has proved to be valuable and effective ... I can see renewed excitement and growth in my leadership team as well."    Jay Carlson, President, Intelligent Lighting Controls, Edina, Minnesota

"Mark has also been a valuable sounding board for me and for other members of our leadership team. Our CFO and I meet monthly with him to review our progress in applying and refining our business operating system. He serves as a valuable sounding board for ideas, issue resolution and insight into a wide range of business issues."  Brian Bullock, Founder & CEO, The Burchfield Group, St. Paul, Minnesota [acquired by AON in 2018]

"Mark and I worked together at Thomson Reuters some years ago, so I knew what I was getting when we engaged in a coaching relationship. Mark brings thoughtful energy to each conversation. He possesses the general business acumen and experience to coach executives in any industry, but for me he also has deep knowledge of the specific markets we are we are breaking new ground in. I highly recommend Mark for both consulting and executive coaching. "   Chris Parton, President & CEO, West Academic
