"This dedicated team's extensive industry experience and values-based client commitment set OneAccord distinctly apart as the preeminent trusted advisor to family-owned and privately held businesses in the Pacific Northwest."
Prior to joining Microsoft, Mark built out the M&A and post-merger integration practices at BEA Systems (which was acquired by Oracle) and led a team in Hewlett Packard's Corporate Development Group. While at J.P. Morgan, he was selected for and completed the Morgan Finance Program, a training program for prospective C-level executives. Mark started in the mergers & acquisitions department and left the firm in 1996 as a vice president of private equity investing.
Mark began his career as an equity sales and trading analyst at Goldman, Sachs & Co. He attended Yale College where he earned a bachelor's with honors in electrical engineering (and completed the requirements for a bachelor's in economics), and Harvard Business School where he earned his MBA.
