full-time and over the next few years, he drove artists like Paul McCartney, Michael Bolton, Gloria Estefan and Natalie Cole, to name a few. In 1993, Mark left the road to put his driving experience to work in the office assisting Trent in booking the tours and in the day-to-day operations of the company. As the fleet grew, Mark was promoted to Operations Manager where he assumed more of the responsibility of booking tours, hiring drivers and scheduling buses. He also developed specialized software and method systems for a better organized and smoother operation.
Now you know him professionally. However, I'm the most proud of him for being the kindest husband and father I could ask for. We met as children (I was 9 and he was 11). Our families have been friends ever since. He has stood by my side through "thick and thin"! He loves me and is a man of strong faith. He has a very tender heart towards God and I lean on that all the time!. Last but not least, he is one of the most gifted bass players you'll ever meet. Every musician who plays with him will agree... he is one of the best bass players in town. We love the life we live together and look forward to all that lies ahead!
