Chief Operating & Financial Officer ABWE Ministries, Inc. & Executive Director at ABWE Foundation, Inc
“Mark took over as District HR Manager in our Novi, MI lab not long after we defeated the IUOE (Operating Engineers) in a supervised vote, clearly a sensitive time that required insight into the situation on the floor as well as an unrelenting eye to process, detail, and legal ramificaitons. He also covered our Canada Division at the same time, and thus had a foot in each country. With responsibility from Vancouver, BC to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and a post-union vote in Michigan, Mark had a wide ranging, highly demanding job. And I'd have Mark back in a heartbeat.”
