We asked him two questions for the purpose of this blog entry.
Question (1) – Do you have any mottos that you live by?
“In the early 1980’s I had a chance to meet Glen Sather and had an opportunity to spend some time discussing business, hockey and the business of winning. Mr. Sather mentioned something he called the six P’s…“proper planning prevents piss poor performance”. That conversation around the six P’s resonated with me and it’s something I live by to this day”.
Question (2) – What was the most memorable home you have built?
“The most memorable home for me was the first two-storey show home we set up at our old Sales Centre on the Fort Road in Edmonton. I remember standing there with my Dad (who had been in the industry since 1970) and discussing how far our homes had come and speculating what the future might hold for Modular Construction”.
Mark makes his home in Edmonton, with his loving wife of 31 years, Joyce. Mark’s personal interests include travel, golf, spectator sports and he is an avid motorcycle enthusiast. Mark and Joyce have two daughters that are grown, graduated University and now pursuing their own respective careers.
