Mark started his career at Haley & Aldrich in 2000 and since then has collaborated with clients as a project engineer, project manager, and most recently, a principal. As an integral member of his clients’ teams from the earliest phase of a project through completion, he partners with clients and team members on a project to understand the project goals and identify shared solutions.

Mark has a proven understanding of the entire ecosystem of vertical development project including the many stakeholders involved – whether they are investors, public agencies, or project abutters. He knows that in development, it is critical to implement solutions that anticipate the unexpected challenges that arise in below grade construction. That’s why he puts himself in his clients’ shoes at every step by thinking ahead and helping them achieve successful outcomes while balancing cost, quality, risk, and time.
