Mark has over 30 years’ experience in land development and construction. He grew up in Pennsylvania, graduated cum laude from Penn State with a B.S. in Civil Engineering and is a licensed General Contractor in North Carolina. Mark was responsible for the site construction of the Brier Creek shopping complex, Cardinal Gibbons High School, early phases of Cisco’s campus and many other residential and commercial projects. When Portrait Homes moved a division to the Raleigh area in 2001, he “kicked off” and developed the first five residential projects built in the area in a two-year period.
Whether it’s working on land acquisition to entitlement, working with contractors, handling contractual and business issues, government officials, he is one of only a few professionals that can take a project, or just an idea, from ground zero to the finished product.
