Mark is the Financial Controller here at Clever Marketing. He has been with the company since it started in January 2007. After 30 years of being an accountant he still enjoys what he does. People often ask why Mark became an accountant, he replies it was to “get rich, get famous and get women”. Picked the wrong career there then! His main passion is cars; having been drawn to them since he first saw a picture of a Lamborghini Countach when he was 9 years old.
Mark’s fascinated by dinosaurs, so imagine his delight when the Jurassic Park film came out. Being a big fan of The Boomtown Rats and Bob Geldof, he’s seen them live dozens of times and hopes to see them again, and again, and again… Mark is proud to be part of the great team at Clever Marketing.
