Marketing Communications and Management Professional

Professional Summary

Mark Engleman FamilyMy dream of working in the communications business started with a third-grade science project.  I built a small, homemade radio receiver consisting of a popsicle stick, toilet paper roll, razor blade, earphone and a spool of copper wire.  Basically, it was a modified version of the foxhole radio that World War II GIs built in the field to pick-up radio broadcasts.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, I have accumulated more than 20-years of management-level experience in broadcasting, marketing communications, project management, and running day-to-day business operations of a multimillion dollar marketing-communications company.  In my tenure, the company experienced close to a three-fold increase in size.

Technology MouseA
long the way, I upgraded my skill set to meet the technological challenges that have had an impact on every business.  My ability to grasp the concepts underlying new technologies made me the catalyst behind the
execution of major initiatives that propelled the company into new product areas, technologies, and market sectors - ultimately creating new revenue streams.  

But this doesn't place me squarely into the pocket-protector set.  I am a creative communicator who has combined the worlds of technology and entertainment to create engaging messages suitable for national and international audiences.  I am a veteran writer/producer who has produced cross-cultural materials in SpanishFrench (Canadian market), German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Japanese.

My management style is collaborative, facilitates team building, and fosters the respect and support of staff members to rally behind a common vision or goal. 

Personally, I am a jazz and classical music fan, and a cyclist.  A roadie to be more specific.  And it's not unusual to catch me pedaling my Cannondale 50 miles or more on a warm day.  My friends tell me I'm a virtual cesspool of useless information, but want me to be their "lifeline" if they are ever a contestant on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."


 Fox Hole Radio 

This is a replica of a World War II Foxhole Radio based on a design submitted by Lt. Paul Cornell to an amateur radio magazine in September 1945.  These sets did not require a power source to operate and soldiers used them to catch up on the latest news and baseball scores from the United States.
