Mark Vincent Santo Mark Vincent Santo Board of Directors CIIM Cleveland Vice President Mark Santo serves as Vice President of the Cleveland Chapter of CIIM. Mr. Santo was recently appointed as the President and CEO of the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, a venerable organization founded over eighty years ago dedicated to world peace. Today, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs is a dynamic catalyst of international programming, international educational outreach and global economic seminars serving Northeast Ohio. Mark brings to the Council an extensive background as an accomplished senior executive in the fields of international business, law, and finance. Mark began his international legal career following his graduation from Georgetown University Law Center with a post graduate law degree in International and Comparative Law. 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. Early in his career, Mark had the good fortune of joining the Finmeccanica Group of Rome, Italy. Finmeccanica is one of Europe's largest aerospace conglomerates and is engaged in the development, design and manufactures of aircraft, helicopters, satellites, missile systems and other equipment for the defense, aeronautics, transportation, helicopter, energy, space, IT and microelectronic industries. Mark joined Finmeccanica as its chief US based counsel and was posted by Finmeccanica to its largest US operation, the Bailey Controls Company of Wickliffe, Ohio in 1990 where he served as Elsag Bailey's Group Vice President and General Counsel. While serving in this role, Mark played a key role in transforming the Elsag Bailey Group into the most important investment in the US by an Italian company. Specifically, Mark served as a senior executive engaged in the execution of over $3+ billion dollars of cross border mergers and acquisition for the Elsag Bailey Group. This consolidation program within the industrial process automation sector resulted in Elsag Bailey revenue growing from $200 million to $2 billion within a seven year period, and culminated in a workforce of 12,000 employees and 40 operating units in 25+ countries. By 1999, the Elsag Bailey Group became the second largest process automation group in the world, with its shares listed on the New York Stock Exchange. In 1999, Mark assisted and played important role in Finmecannica's divestiture program with respect to several of its operating units, including the Elsag Bailey Group. Following a worldwide auction by Merril Lynch International of the Elsag Bailey Group, a sale of the Elsag Bailey Group was made to Asea Brown Boveri ("ABB") for $2.1 billion dollars at a 100% increase in share value. Following the sale of Elsag Bailey, Mark resigned from Finmecannica and the practice of law to pursue investment and management opportunities in the industrial technology sector. Since then Mark has worked extensively in the early stage technology sector and has assisted several organizations in the raising of private equity and venture capital investment as well as serving in senior executive management roles. Most notably, in 2003, Mark acquired Parvus Corporation, a small aerospace electronics group based in Salt Lake City on behalf of an Udine, Italy based embedded systems conglomerate, the Eurotech Group. Following this acquisition, Mark served as President of Parvus Corporation and successfully led the restructuring pf Parvus and grew its revenue and profitability over the next three years. Upon completion of this restructuring phase, Mark returned to Cleveland in late 2006 to take-up his current post with the Cleveland World Affairs Council.
