Mark began his career in hospitality as Chief Engineer at the Hilton Garden Inn of Freeport, Maine. The hotel opened in 2005 and Mark was there prior to opening to work closely with the construction crew to ensure boilers and all maintenance items were installed correctly and safely. Prior to the Hilton Garden Inn, Mark attended Central Maine Vocational Technical School, studying Stationary Steam Engineering and worked at two power plants as a Control Room Operator and Shift Supervisor. He earned his State of Maine First Class Engineer License and maintains the license today.
The portfolio of hotels in Maine has grown giving Mark the opportunity to share his experience with the other properties. He now assists and oversees the hotel maintenance operations in the NorthEast Region.
In 2007, Mark was nominated by his peers for the national Spirit of Pride Award with Hilton Garden Inn after proving to be an exceptional role model. He won the award and joined an elite few who are recognized nationally for this recognition.
Mark enjoys the different challenges presented to him on a regular basis with the hotels which keeps him very interested in his job. Most importantly, however, he enjoys working with the people and is happy to be part of the Emerald team.
