Head of Sector, Building Products & Construction
With 23 years of recruitment experience under his belt, Mark has spent the last 19 focused on Building Products & Construction
Having finished Sports Exercise Science, I commenced a degree in Human Biology. However, my first son came along, which curtailed this! I later chose a career in Executive Search as I wanted to help people. I still get a satisfactory buzz when I receive great feedback from a client and believe this is why I’m able to build strong understandings with them. I care! I also have a mini MBA and certificate in Prince project management.
I have been with Collingwood since 2012 and manage the Building Products & Construction business unit. I also get involved in operationally led, manufacturing clients.
Outside of work
I coach my sons under 11’s cricket team which I thoroughly enjoy. I love to read, with a broad interest across business books, biographies and fiction (currently reading Something wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury. It’s certainly up there with one of my favourites). Both fitness and music take up any additional spare time I have.
What do you like most about your job?
The satisfaction attached to gaining maximum return for a client. I also enjoy interviewing diverse, technical people. There’re some fascinating jobs out there.
Favourite Band: I’m a music snob (something I dislike about myself). Favourite bands range from White Denim, Thee Oh Sees, to The Who and St Vincent.
Favourite Film: Again, a rich array - Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy and anything with Daniel Day-Lewis in.
Favourite Food: Mexican food or anything with a generous dollop of spice! 😊
