Brad worked at another portfolio company of our corporate parent after we sold eNeighborhoods to Dominion. We were on a cross-company project together that I helped organize.
I met Mark at the very first business meeting I ever attended in my professional life. Among the crowd attending, Mark was truly unique. Didnt reek of sales nor IT. He went on to present his truly brilliant and entirely unique- to my knowledge -(at the scale it is/was at) system for aggregation of IDX data. Anyone who’s aggregated one or more boards can appreciate the intelligence and experience that contributed to truly cost-effective ETL of IDX data with a focus on integrity and accuracy. I didnt work with Mark a great deal, and spent most of my time giving him excuses as to my delays in regards to our company-wide project, but every dealing I had with him found him to have the utmost integrity. One of the reasons I stayed on with the company for this long (I’m canned on the 31st, fyi) was my desire to work for Mark directly. Mark is a brilliant systems designer, the type of person I’d take pay cuts to work with. Always reliable- a follow-upper (rare in the corporate environment).
