Operations Manager/Environmental Scientist

Mark has worked for MBC for approximately 10 years.
He has significant operational management experience, from small scale sites to multi-million dollar projects.
Mark holds both a BSc and MSc, along with having extensive experience in a range of environmental disciplines. Prior to joining MBC, Mark worked in a number of locations overseas, gaining a great  deal of practical field experience. His first five years in New Zealand were spent mainly on the West Coast, contracting to the mining sector, where he worked on projects involving environmental monitoring, threatened species management and contaminated water management.
Mark relocated to Christchurch following the Canterbury Earthquakes, where he has since led our operations on the East Coast. Mark’s current focus is on environmental management in the built environment, including hazardous substances, sediment and erosion control and environmental compliance. Mark has been heavily involved in the management of hundreds of sites during this period. His ability to draw upon his academic knowledge and  practical experience, to find pragmatic, cost-effective and safe solutions, has been invaluable during this time. Mark is hands-on in his role. In addition to overseeing the Christchurch branch, he can be found working in the field, putting his experience in to practice.
