Mark joined Miyamoto in 2010 and provided an essential role in the recovery of Haiti after the 7.0 M earthquake. He commuted to Haiti for the next 8 years and became an honorary Haitian. After the Palu earthquake in Indonesia in 2018, he designed and implemented an earthquake-damaged retrofit design program for 3,000 schools. With the help of local engineers, he recruited and trained in an incredibly challenging environment. Following the 2020 Puerto Rico earthquake, he was instrumental in helping us open our Puerto Rico office. His can-do attitude and unique leadership style have been influential.
