Mark was attracted to Velentium, not only due to his prior career experience with Dan, but also because he believed in Dan and Tim’s vision and values for the company. He was extremely motivated by the idea that his efforts could change people’s lives across the world, which would allow him to have an ever-increasing platform to continue his passion of serving others. Humble Charisma resonates most with Mark. He has always believed that work satisfaction and quality of output depends on enjoying the people surrounding the task. This includes co-workers, direct reports, customers, and most importantly, the people who end up using the product.
Mark believes that there are companies in the medical device industry who have great talent and who leverage it to maximize their profits. On the other hand, there are companies whose core values dictate their internal and external operating procedures. What makes Velentium stand out in his eyes is its ability to not only attract and retain highly talented individuals, but to ensure that those individuals reflect the core values of the company. Many companies struggle to keep talent and values from being overtaken by financial motives, but at Velentium, it is the #1 business proposition to its customers.
