Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services
Mark is an award-winning CIO, a change agent who has led organizations in creating innovative solutions to some of the toughest business challenges around. Known for formulating and articulating powerful visions and using them to drive change in complex, matrixed, and sometimes rigid and bureaucratic environments.

He has also published three other books on IT leadership and IT-business alignment: A Seat at the Table: IT Leadership in the Age of Agility, War and Peace and IT: Business Leadership, Technology, and Success in the Digital Age, and The (Delicate) Art of Bureaucracy: Digital Transformation with the Monkey, the Razor, and the Sumo Wrestler.
As an Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services, Mark works with senior executives from the world's largest companies to help them formulate strategies and overcome impediments to succeeding in the digital era. I speak frequently at conferences on topics such as innovation, cultural change, governance and investment management, organizational agility, resilience, DevOps, and harnessing the business value of the cloud.
