What matters most

What matters most to Mark about working for Hartsfield?

Working with a firm where the philosophy and values are shared by everyone within the company is really important to me. Striking the right work/life balance is also important and I’m very fortunate to be able to work for a company that can offer me the flexibility to achieve this.

What matters most to Mark about his specific role?

I cover a number of roles within the business which complement each other well and having the autonomy to conduct each role is important to me as it allows me to be forward-thinking in everything I do. Given the ever-changing regulatory landscape and industry in general; to be able to continually develop and learn in an environment that allows me to do so, also matters to me.

What matters most to Mark outside of work?

Life can be busy enough, so, for me; it’s making the time to be able to do the things me and my family want to do, when we want to do it. Whilst I have plans for the future, it’s also important for me to do things now!
