As one of the agency’s founders, Mark is dedicated to building and protecting the culture he co-created at McGarrah Jessee. Mark started his career in advertising back in 1985 at the Richards Group. Over the next seven years, he learned to master the art of account service. He also forged a partnership with an equally demanding young creative named Bryan Jessee. From there, Mark joined GSD&M as vice president/account director. In 1996, he and Bryan decided to test a hunch they had about creating an agency culture that truly collaborated deep and wide with brands. As it turns out, this was not such a bad idea.
