CEO Group (CE-12)

Founded in 1973, CE-12 is a legendary San Diego CEO Vistage group. Each group takes on a certain personal identity, in addition to upholding the core elements of the Vistage model. The strength of CE-12 comes from the members’ relentless desire to learn and their willingness to ask the tough question. There is no judgment, only support for each member and a shared desire to help each other’s companies succeed.



Founded in 2007, the UCSD Rady MBA Vistage on Campus group is my gift back to the San Diego community. This pro bono group serves a select group of Flex-Weekend students at UCSD. My goal is to provide these amazing students with the Vistage experience, monthly meetings with fantastic speakers, important group discussions and 1-on-1 mentoring.


CEO Group (CE-8924)

Forming in 2024, this future group will provide a new set of CEOs a chance to form their own peer advisory group. As new members join, they get to decide who will be part of this special group. Considering that CE-12 was formed 50 years ago, this is a rare opportunity to influence group formation.

About Mark

I understand the challenges CEOs face. In 1984, I founded Stellcom, an engineering services company, and led it for 16 years, growing revenues to $50,000,000. After a Series B round of private equity, when I took some money off the table, I retired from Stellcom to become a Vistage Chair.

Since then my focus is helping other CEOs navigate their challenges as they grow their companies. For these CEOs, I am the one person they can count on to listen without judgement and ask the tough questions.

Leadership in today’s world is more complex than ever. My passion to help leaders is stronger than ever. If you would like to work with me and a group of experienced CEOs, please contact me to see if Vistage is right for you.
