The Great Work

Here are some of our recent clients working at the nexus of multiple sectors:

“Mark is brilliant — on so many levels. He brings a deep understanding of the landscape and forces driving the many segments across the technology industry, as well as the nonprofit and government sectors, making him a strategic partner with a broad set of reference points. The project he led for me became a collaboration that transformed the strategy of the organization I represented and foretold broader movements in the industry. The work we did together continues to be a defining moment of my career.”

Wendy Conway Head of Marketing, Omidyar Network
