Mark is co-owner of Boardroom Eco® Apparel. His team describes him as the visionary, high-energy, marketing and strategy guru of the business. Born and raised in Vancouver BC, Mark is alumni of the University of British Columbia’s Agriculture and Economics program (1987). After University, Mark spent a year playing professional hockey in Germany (he currently plays forward on UBC’s Alumni team - go T-Birds!). After Germany, he returned to Vancouver and settled into a position as financial risk advisor for The Royal Bank. Nine years later, Mark started Boardroom Custom Clothing and the rest is history.
Mark’s goal is to provide a safe, fun and rewarding place to work and to manufacture apparel in the most low-impact way possible. Mark brought the Eco® concept to Boardroom - long before anyone else in the field - and is always pushing for higher accountability, better fabrics, better processes and more education. As an entrepreneur, Mark is aware of the importance of staying flexible, thinking big, taking risks and leading by example. Mark has an infectiously energetic personality and a real passion for bringing clean, green clothing to corporations, government organizations and the general consumer. In addition to being the Eco® Apparel brand ambassador, Mark volunteers his time as a presenter for Al Gore’s Climate Project, and the Dr. David Suzuki At Work Ambassador program.
