Mark is a native of Pocatello and graduate of Idaho State University where he received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in Management and Organization. He is currently the Executive Director of NeighborWorks® Pocatello and has held this position since 2007. Prior to this, he worked in various capacities at Farmers Insurance for 17 years.
Mark joined Valley Pride shortly after it was formed because many of the other organizations he’s belonged to, such as the Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee and the Portneuf Greenway Foundation, hold similar beliefs that Pocatello will prosper if it is a beautiful and well-kept community where people have a great amount of pride in where they live. He feels Valley Pride has and will continue to make a positive impact to the community because of the high caliber of people that make up its Board and volunteer base. “Pocatello truly is the volunteer capital of the country…if we continue to tap into this, the possibilities for this community are endless.”
