Mark’s key strengths are in design and problem solving, as well as hands on development. He prides himself on producing high quality and robust deliverables, employing best practices and promoting the sharing of information amongst team members. Mark’s extensive experience and knowledge of Siebel has often led to mentoring roles where he has taught junior team members not only how to build Siebel implementations but to do so effectively, following best practices throughout.
Mark is also adept at dealing directly with the business, in discussing requirements and presenting solutions. Many of his previous roles have involved discussing requirements and solutions with business users in a non-technical/user friendly manner.
