In 2011, with the company's support, Mark pursued his Masters of Business Administration from the University of New Brunswick. 

“The knowledge I gained through the program helped grow my career drastically,” says Mark. “As I transitioned from a more technical role into a leadership position, the program provided me with foundational knowledge to learn more about how businesses are run.”
