I had worked with Mark in a previous company, so when my current client needed expert help to improve their development process, I did not hesitate for a second recommending we bring in Mark to help us do this. Mark worked with me to completely change my client’s approach to agile development, and we turned a jira system which was largely relegated to collecting dust and used in a few projects to be a company wide execution system, that was as effective for marketing as it was for scrum development. I’d recommend Mark for anyone wanting to improve their development methodology and figure out how to use Jira in the optimal way.
Mark developed a highly professional software development process in which high quality results were demanded and achieved. He is also a great mediator with infinite patience and resolve.
Mark is a truly remarkable manager. His ability to bring the best out of people is unique in my experience. He experiments boldly and successfully with a variety of approaches, founded on a strong and genuine concern for the welfare of his colleagues. I hold Mark in the highest regard as both a technical director and a people manager. Mark is someone who is capable of creating and sustaining the kind of organisational culture which can produce superb – and sustained – results.
Mark’s wide range of good technical knowledge enables him to make critical technical decisions and lead any team to it’s goal. His leadership abilities are something to aspire to, and he always listens to his workers and takes their recommendations on board. Mark’s drive for better process produces obvious results including increased productivity and worker moral.
“Mark keeps his team focused at all times and he brings the maximum out of people. He can also be a hands-on manager. How often do you see a CIO who writes SQL? He isn’t afraid of making critical technical decisions either. He is also a big believer in Extreme Programming. Most important, he has an incredible ability to find talented and good-natured people to join his team.
Mark is a seasoned technology professional and leader whose hallmarks are committment and innovation. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark at Mooter and I recommend him unreservedly.
Mark is a natural leader, knows how to generate a motivated work environment to make the team perform better. Proactive, target-driven and most important, good person.
