Prior to joining GPS Impact, Mark served as Deputy Chief of Staff to the Iowa House Majority Leader and as Campaign Manager for Iowa’s Water & Land Legacy which, when funded, will be the largest conservation ballot measure in U.S. history – protecting over $150 million per year for conservation programs in the State of Iowa.

He continues to serve as Executive Director for Iowa’s Water & Land Legacy – a coalition of over 130 conservation, environmental, and outdoor recreation organizations who support funding Iowa’s Natural Resources & Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund.
FUN FACT: Mark has spent significant time in a van touring the U.S. as a drummer in the early 2000’s. Ask him. He has stories. Not good stories, but stories nonetheless.
