In 1998, as founding CEO & President of Debbie-lee Advertising Inc., he led his team to specializing in the automotive industry, later becoming a Chrysler conquest vender for the western region.

Mark is very much a family man and loves spending time with his wife and kids. (When the latter have time to visit!) Whether at home on Vancouver Island or at his favorite getaway—Kona, Hawaii—he likes to keep his lifestyle simple. He enjoys riding his motorcycle and camping in different locations on Vancouver Island with his wife.
