Mark has over 20 years of experience in ICT and over 10 years in Programme Management across areas such as Health, Energy, Government and Education.
Prior to One Education he worked for Northgate delivering full ICT infrastructure and services to schools under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme.
