Pricing has been a lifelong passion for Mark. As a child, he contemplated why companies always use 99 cent price endings, which led to the question, “Do companies think we’re stupid?” He had a chance to study this question during his doctoral program at the University of California at Berkeley and hasn’t looked back since.
An award-winning speaker, Mark speaks at professional conferences for the Professional Pricing Society, International Quality and Productivity Center (IQPC), American Marketing Association, Consumer Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), Marketing Science and other professional settings.
