Mark grew up in northern West Virginia where he attended Fairmont State University, studying computer programming and business administration. Moving to North Carolina, Mark honed his management style in the restaurant and convenience store industries. He was the called back to his methodical side, obtaining work as a logistical analyst for a major food distribution company, overseeing route development nationally. Growing up, Mark’s family vacationed annually at the beach, creating a love for coastal living, which seemed to constantly call him back to the shore. So, he moved to Myrtle Beach, where he answered an ad for an assistant manager position with a storage facility, beginning an eleven year career in this industry. As he strived to learn the business, Mark excelled and began to advance, first to the Site Manager position (winning Manager of the Year for 2005,) and then on to the corporate level, becoming the first IT Director for The Heyward Companies. Since their merger with Universal Management Company, he has continued to provide computer support for not only the facilities but also for the corporate offices. Various daily issues, along with reporting and problem solving, make no two days alike, which is just the way Mark likes it.
My logical thinking from my father, my love for computers from my past teacher (Joe Delaney,) my storage experience from Andy Shobert and Albert Heyward, and finally my spiritual side from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
