Mark’s accomplished career at Disney spanned 26 years, working in a wide variety of leadership roles in Operations, Entertainment, Guest Relations, Transportation, Resorts, and Human Resources.
At Disney, Mark worked with Fred Lee as part of the team that brought Fred to the Disney Institute and was a co-lead for the project designing a program to apply the Disney approach to the healthcare profession. He asked Fred to join Disney to “confirm credibility” to their program. Fred added his decades of experience and provided many examples of how the Disney approach to leadership, employee engagement, customer service, and operational excellence could elevate most any healthcare operation. Mark also worked with Fred Lee to write an implementation book for If Disney Ran Your Hospital to “connect the dots between knowing and doing.” Mark and Fred were preparing to write the final draft when Fred tragically fell ill and passed away. This book is now in its final stage of editing.
In 1992, during Mark’s doctoral studies at the University of Florida, Mark was recruited to work with the Federal Aviation Administration. As the organization’s senior consultant, Mark was heavily involved with the Department of Transportation’s operational redesign – spearheading initiatives such as executive development, assessment and design, change dynamics, self-managed/directed work teams, and train-the-trainer programs. Mark also began consulting extensively with healthcare organizations world-wide.
Mark returned to the Walt Disney World Resort in 1996 when requested to lead the growth of the Disney Institute Professional Programs. While in this role, Mark was in charge of Leadership, Creativity & Innovation, and Quality Service Initiatives. He also designed and developed the healthcare programs in quality service and people management, with the concepts that later were included in the best-selling healthcare management book If Disney Ran Your Hospital, by Fred Lee. In recognition of his contribution to the Disney organization, Mark was nominated for the prestigious “Partner’s in Excellence” award—Disney’s highest regarded corporate award.
Mark leads a group of former Disney executives/leaders in helping organizations of all sizes achieve world-class excellence. Specializing in the healthcare and service industries, Mark and his expert team has a long list of proven success stories.
