Over a twenty year career in international law, business and finance and traveling the world many times over, Mark has acquired an extensive network of international associates and colleagues at the highest levels of law, business, academia, and world affairs. During his career, Mark has continued to deepen his life-long interest and passion for world affairs and foreign policy matters and has been a member of the Cleveland Council on World Affairs and other foreign policy organizations.
