"Battlefields are scenes of constant chaos. The winner will control that chaos, both his own and the enemies." Napoleon Bonaparte

Mark’s leadership philosophy relies on several attributes: courage and resilience while facing fear or failure; innovative planning and flexibility during execution in high-stress situations; using preparation and initiative to eliminate chaos and disorder; disciplined training, education, and dedication inspiring teams to move forward, leaving personal comfort zones to seize growth opportunities; cementing trust in relationships with business and international partners so they know you will be at the right place and the right time to pull them through the gates of hell.

Leveraging these principles, I’ve spoken and consulted with military and industry giants like Boeing, Northrop Grumman, European Aeronautics Defense and Space, Lockheed, Embraer, Sikorsky, Alenia, L-3 Technologies, and organizations within the US and international governments.

Inspiring and educational keynotes describe the three words every pilot memorizes to get through any emergency, Aviate, Navigate, and Communicate; the Fear, Attitude, Situational Awareness, and Trust (FAST) method as a means to move past the chaos; People making Significant Impacts in others’ lives and how Self-Education creates bulletproof mindsets; and problem-solving techniques to use in high-stress environments.

Mark is an expert working with people, facilities, and supply chains; creating order from chaos on a global scale. My experience is unique as a former Air Force pilot crossing the globe at 28,000 feet with a belly full of gas on thirty minutes’ notice.    

An expert in global mobility and logistics, a title derived from 70 combat missions and leading high-performance teams in extremely dynamic environments. Those teams planned, executed, and flew complex multinational operations across four continents and two hemispheres simultaneously. One team transferred enough fuel to allow a Ford F-150 truck to make 2865 round trips to the moon!

Mark has educated US and international students delivering over 5000 presentations during his career. As the Chief Operations Officer for a group of 18 Air Force operators, we created the world’s only graduate-level education on global air refueling and logistics operations, now a division of the prestigious US Air Force Weapons School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
