On Mark

Mark Fellenz brings to bear a deep professional background in management consulting along with the creativity and ingenuity of an entrepreneur. His specialty is blending the strategic and tactical in always finding smart, out-of-the-box approaches to whatever challenges may exist.

Mark started his career with Ernst & Young LLP consulting for some of the largest companies in the world and then moved into successive cycles of start-up efforts, independent consulting and project management activities, which brings him his current dual-track of both consulting and finally launching a start-up of his own making. He earned a bachelor’s in electrical engineering and an MBA in entrepreneurship, both from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Mark is looking forward to a hopefully great season of camping and another round of snowshoeing toward the end of the year.
