Mark's Pages

COO, physically small, high whining voice, hyper-rapid enunciation so that he sounds like as well as resembles a manic chihuahua. Cursing, pacing, voice rising to full shout, finger-wagging. Name calling: "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid fucking!"

Behind his back eyes roll. Nothing he intervenes in is changed: the phones still can't dial out, the teams still are confused about priorities.

Hired specifically to eliminate day-to-day roadblocks.
