Because I'm new to Upwork, here are some testimonies I've received from past clients I secured outside of this site. “Mark is not only competent in planning and delivering an incredible product, he was also able to guide APGNN on what would benefit our needs and made several recommendations that had not yet been considered. APGNN is a medical organization, and we appreciated Mark’s ability to articulate the process in a way that was easy for us to understand without becoming overly technical. We found him to be very collaborative and professional throughout the entire process.” —Elizabeth Burch | President, APGNN "Mark is a very detail-oriented Project Manager. He connects with his team players as well as key stakeholders. He asks great questions during business meetings and has insightfulness on how to approach problem-solving. Mark’s biggest strength is that he listens to understand the requirements - which is a key attribute to being a top leader. Working with him brings out the best in people, regardless of industry. His experience is very unique and vast. If you do not hire Mark, consider him a gift to your competitor. That’s how strongly I feel about his work ethic, leadership, and project management as well as relationship building skills." —Manish Shere | Program Manager at Peraton "I hired Mark because of his ability to quickly grasp, learn, and master almost any subject. I haven’t yet met anyone else that learns as quickly, is as perceptive to ask the right questions, and comes up with creative/innovative solutions as readily as him. Apart from being very technical, Mark has strong written and oral communication skills. While he is an engineer/project manager by profession, he could very well be a writer. As an employee, Mark does not need to be closely supervised as he is self-motivated, accountable, and very professional. I look forward to one day working with him again.” —Jeannette Bernardo | President, Filius Corporation "Over the last two decades, I have engaged Mark on a number of projects for different businesses. Every project was successfully completed and led to additional work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark and am happy to speak more via email or phone at any time.” —Jonathan Meisner | Founder/Owner, Meisner Entertainment Group "I utilized Mark's expertise for many years to help my organization grow. His focus on details, accuracy and timeliness allowed us to see success with every project he was involved with. I highly recommend him.” —Mathew Newfield | Senior Vice President & Chief Security Infrastructure Officer (CSIO), Unisys "During my tenure the University had undertaken a major building campaign (largest in 25 years). We required a branding of the major building campaign and a re-branding of our plant facilities. Mark is an energetic and goal-oriented person. He is talented and well-organized, with a strong ability to analyze problems and outline necessary courses of action that support his team. He’s a dedicated and self-directed individual who can be depended upon to take a project to completion." —Bruce Costella | Executive Director of Capital Projects at Howard University
