As a Business Developer, Mark has an extensive network of Military, DoD Civilian, and Corporate contacts.

Mark’s ability to decipher complex Requests for Proposals and quickly identify critical factors is instrumental to TMST’s client support. He has a unique ability to “see over the horizon” and prepare for challenges and unexpected issues long before they become significant.
Mark’s keen eye was developed and enhanced after serving as an Observer/Controller, Operations Officer, and Opposing Forces Deputy Commander at the National Training Center. In these positions, he was required to assess situations quickly, respond to changing conditions, and deliver results regardless of the obstacles and modulations of a fast-paced environment where change is predominant.
Mark routinely attends the significant Modeling, Simulations and Training meetings and events in Orlando and elsewhere. He is the author of the TMST Monthly/PALT notes. Clients laud these notes and are routinely requested by prospective clients and others needing to get the “In the Know” perspective of the business community.
In addition to being the COO, Mark is a great TMST teammate, displaying a heartfelt passion for clients and doing business in the Modeling, Simulations, and Training business markets. He generously gives his talent, time, and energy to assist consultants and provide value-added perspectives to clients.
