Serial Entrepreneur, Co-Founder: Beta Brands, Inc.

Mark is a serial entrepreneur and has been so his entire life. He launched his first retail company out of his Ohio State dorm room at the age of 19. Since then he has either been a co-founder in or a part of 5 other startups, all but 1 being in the e-commerce or technology sectors.

Retailing Via Video

In 2008 he launched an online retailer for woman's apparel called Beverly Lane. Beverly Lane was the 1st online retailer to embark on something that is now known as "hauling". This is where a network of influential video bloggers are put together to do "hauls" for the retailer introducing the companies products to their audience. This was a huge success for Beverly Lane and now is a technique used by the world's top retailers including Forever21, H&M, Marshalls, JCPenney, and many more. Video based retail quickly became the mantra for the company and the primary distribution channel. This type of insight into the future of social commerce is making Mark a go to figure and thought leader in the space.
