“I have been active in the business of sports for 45 years and have seen the dynamic growth in our industry. An area which has always intrigued me is the tremendous interest in career development for opportunities in sports. Over the years, I have received thousands of calls and letters from interested and qualified people searching for employment in sports. Never was I able to confidently refer them to an organization who could show them a prepared course of action. SportSearch has the most unique career development program available in our industry. It focuses on developing a personal network of influential contacts and acquiring REAL JOBS. I agree with the enormous need for personal guidance in career development and access to opportunities available. I feel the SportSearch program is the only program of its kind addressing these issues and would recommend it to anyone who is serious about building a career in sports. ”

“I’ve had the privledge to have worked with Mark as a client, candidate and colleague over the past 10 years. He is one of the best resources for finding talent in sports and entertainment, and works with some of the top employers in our business. Most recently, we have been fellow board members on the PHX sports commission and I’ve enjoyed working closely with him to bring top sports properties to the Phoenix area. There are not many better people to know and work with than Mark, and if you are seeking top talent for your business – SPORTSEARCH should be your first call.”

“Mark is the kind of guy willing to do anything for anyone without concern for how it may personally benefit him. It’s for that reason I feel like he has found his true calling in career services, his search clients and job seekers are treated with respect and with an eye for what best serves their needs. He doesn’t force the wrong person into the wrong job to get a commission. Likewise, he does ask people to change who they are to fit into a job opening he needs to fill. His community involvement speaks to this as well. The best thing I can say about Mark is that you can trust him to have your best interest in mind, which is far too rare in his line of work.”
