I had the pleasure of managing Mark for a couple of years when he was in the role of Technical Consultant. Mark is an absolute pleasure to work with and he effortlessly combines in depth technical knowledge with being a great team player. His approach to designing solutions which not only meet the customer needs, but also builds a reusable capability is fantastic and he is always willing to share his knowledge and thinking with the other members of the team. I would recommend Mark to anyone looking for a highly skilled technical programme lead.
Alan McCoy, Head of Delivery, Software Solved
I worked with Mark on a number of user facing B2C products and back end architecture projects at the Key. An exceptionally experienced senior developer; with a focus on high quality scalable code, that will be rock solid in production come what may. Mark's easy going, yet knows how to stand his ground on important issues of architecture and design. He'll make a fantastic addition in a senior role of any engineering team, especially where scale and Code quality are your key priorities.

Rosie Thomas, Project Manager Key Support, The Key Support
I worked with Mark for the 6 months I have spent at The Key on a number of projects. Mark was my go-to for anything Jira related and was always happy to offer help and advice in a clear and approachable way. Additionally Mark was something of a tutor to me and would take time to ensure I understood the processes of modern software development. Mark was very dynamic in his role and was able to work more than effectively as architect, team lead, developer and business analyst. A very talented and knowledgeable developer and also a thoroughly nice chap with a great taste in music.

Mark proved invaluable in modernising our development processes during the year he spent with itim. He helped choose the most appropriate tools and methodologies for us going forward, mentored the team through the transition, and contributed personally to various development projects. His breadth of experience was one important factor in the successful achievement of our key goals, but equally important was his personal approach.
