Advertising is in Mark’s blood. After college and three years overseas with the 1st Infantry Division, he began his career working for his dad’s local ad agency in Minneapolis. From there he moved on to Carmichael Lynch, where he supervised some of CL’s most coveted national accounts, including Sam Adams Beer, Rapala Fishing, American Standard, and Korbel Champagne. Eight years later, Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit took over and he left with Tom Gabriel to form GDR Advertising (now GdB). At GdB, Mark provides senior account leadership on several accounts. When not at work, Mark prefers to be “Up North” at the cabin with his wife and three sons (who are now all in college, so call soon please).
