Navy SEAL; Leadership Speaker and Coach

Managing Director; SEAL Legacy Foundation; a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational assistance and support grants to families of wounded and fallen United States Navy SEALs. The Foundation was established in 2011 to preserve the SEAL legacy of no one left behind.

“I have had many, many speakers over the years, while coaching both in college and the NFL, but nobody had the impact that Mark had on my entire team and coaches. His team building exercises are “right on” for any company or athletic team that wants to be the best in what they are doing. He covers all the things that winners have to know. I am in full agreement that any team or company that does not implement Mark’s keys to winning, is not doing all it can to be the best. SMU will be a better team today because Mark shared with us his beliefs.”
