Mark has served on either the PTV board or that of its real estate subsidiary since 2011. He retired in 2008 from a career as an international tax lawyer, with stints at law firms in Washington, at the U.S. Treasury Department in their office of international tax policy, and as international tax counsel for General Electric. Since his retirement, he has done volunteer work teaching English to new Americans in Danbury CT, and tutoring young mothers in Newport VT to help them get their high school diplomas. He has also served on boards of other local non-profits, including North Country Hospital, and the Children’s Literacy Foundation.
Mark feels lucky to have been a part of PTV’s critical work of strengthening Vermont by keeping its towns and villages economically vital, preserving its important historic places, and maintaining its incomparable rural character.
Mark lives with wife Ann, a retired Presbyterian minister, in Hanover NH, and they spend as much time as possible at their lake home in Charleston VT. Their son and his wife are physicians living in South Hampton NH. Their daughter, a writer, lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, a research scientist. Together they have produced four grand daughters, who produce in turn an almost immeasurable amount of chaos and delight.
