A kind hearted and caring gentleman with a great sense of humour and a passion for his job. Mark has been a huge support for me in the last few years sharing his encyclopedic knowledge and being a great sounding board, always seeing straight to the point and providing help and advice. It is only recently that we started to laugh about his ‘1hour’ meetings he had scheduled, which could take up to 3 or 4 hours at times, going through all of our grand plans for the store with his pinpoint precision details and a few side topics along the way! Mark has made a big impact on my career and he will continue to be a role model for me in the future. My thoughts are with Mark’s wife, family and friends during this difficult time.
