Words to Live By…
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Mark joined Sandpiper in 2015 with high-level financial smarts and extreme professional acumen. Hi previous experience includes Capital One Financial, Cavalier Telephone (Paetec Communications, Windstream Communications, Intellifiber Networks, Elantic Telecom), Industrial Galvanizers America, Broadslate Networks, United Power Corporation (Danaher Power Solutions), Keiter CPAs and Deloitte.
Mark’s focus is on both the property management and the investor sides of the business. He established and leads the company’s in-house accounting team, covering the areas of finance, treasury, investor reporting and taxation. As well, he serves as the financial liaison to the company’s shareholders. In other words, he wears a bunch of hats for the organization and is often seen wearing several.
Mark enjoys the smaller size of the company as it affords him the opportunity to have a larger scope and a hands-on, personal approach. Mark is excited about Sandpiper’s ongoing growth trajectory.
He grew up in Alexandria, VA, but Richmond, VA is what he considers to be his hometown.

Mark’s favorite college class was “Elements of Physical Geography” where he learned the science behind how rain happens. We like to think that’s why he’s so good at making it rain for our investors.
