I’m proud of what we’ve achieved. And I am nothing but excited for the direction we’re headed.”
Mark joined Perforce in 2016 as COO/CFO and assumed the role of CEO & President in 2018. In that time, he has tripled the overall revenue of the Company through organic growth and acquisition-related activity.
