Mark has over 18 years of experience in the heavy equipment industry. He was always passionate about heavy equipment, right from a toddler who began with Tonka trucks in the sandbox, to fueling and greasing machines when he was old enough to work for his relatives in the construction industry and eventually operating equipment.
After going to University for his BBA, he knew a job in the financial and conventional business environment was not where his passion was. His passion was to be in the heavy equipment industry. As a result, he made the decision to go to college to become a heavy equipment technician. After college, he accepted a job with the local Cat dealer where he managed to skip getting his hands dirty and went into their Management Trainee program. Mark spent close to 15 years working at the Cat dealership through various jobs on the product support side of the business.
In 2014, Marcel Equipment approached him with an opportunity to join the company. It was a tough decision to leave a company that provided him with many great opportunities and one that he thought he would retire from. However, in the end and already having a close relationship with Marcel Equipment, the move made sense for him and his family and he joined the team. He believes in doing things right the first time; as well as being fair and honest, which is a perfect fit for the trustworthy reputation of Marcel Equipment. He works by the motto…would you feel comfortable selling this piece of equipment to your own father.
Today, he manages the business at Marcel Equipment for Groupe Poisson and loves coming into work each day to face the rewards and challenges of the industry.
Mark and his wife Tiffany have two young children. His hobbies include playing hockey, fishing and snowmobiling.
Mark looks forward to continuing the tradition of providing quality used equipment for Marcel Equipment and building upon the Marcel Equipment reputation and name that has been built over the past 45 years.
