Forbes called Mark one of America’s Top Venture Investors with the ‘Midas Touch.’ Mark was Charles Schwab’s former chief of staff and chief customer experience officer, is a co-founder of Sir Richard Branson’s Entrepreneurship Centres, an executive coach for TED Fellows, and an early investor in companies such as Facebook, Netflix and Esurance.
