Mark was born and raised in Calgary and attended Springbank School graduating in 1977. Success in business was soon to be realized when he purchased his first business before his 18th birthday!
For the last 40 years Mark has been involved in the Banking, Real Estate, and Lending industries. Following an 8 year tenure with First Calgary Credit Union was a successful 15 year career selling Real Estate. In 2002 Mark and Dianne founded Cedar Peaks Mortgage Services.
Today, Mark and Dianne live in Elbow Valley and each have 1 child, both married, one residing in Winnipeg MB., and the other in Toronto. As “young” empty nesters (with the exception of their two King Charles Cavaliers) Mark and Dianne enjoy golf (getting the most out of their Elbow Springs membership), exploring new culinary experiences at home, nice wines, and time at their cottage in Radium B.C. whenever possible.
