CEO for Mace Group
Group Board tenure: 19 years
Since becoming CEO in 2013, Mark has led the company to grow revenues by 50% and people by 45%. From the outset, he set out his aspiration for Mace to become a £2bn turnover company, a leading international programme manager and a top 10 UK contractor, while delivering service excellence for our clients.
- What skills and experience do you bring to your role on the Mace Board?
During my career I've worked on some of the most challenging projects and programmes, which has given me a deep understanding of what it takes to deliver complex projects from inception to completion.
I've consistently championed change within our industry. For me, doing things because 'that's the way they have always been done', is not good enough. I'm passionate about finding better ways of delivering major programmes and projects for our clients, whilst ensuring Mace is more productive, more efficient and safer.
Since 2013, I have led the development of our 2020 vision and established the corporate strategy to ensure Mace remains at the forefront of our industry.
- How have you seen the company develop during your time here?
- What’s your proudest moment at Mace?
- Where would you like to see Mace in five years time?
- I'd like Mace to be well established in our five strategic global hubs and be the best and most respected consultancy and construction company in the UK, while being recognised for employing the best people who consistently deliver service excellence that adds real value to our clients.
- What are you passionate about outside of work?
I'm a keen swimmer and still manage to compete at Masters competitions regularly. My events are the 50m up to 400m freestyle - nothing too far!
“My proudest achievement at Mace has to be delivering the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and now working with LLDC to deliver the Games’ legacy for east London. ”
