About

Hello and thank you for visiting my site.  My name is Mark Sullivan and I have been in recruiting since 1993 on the vendor and corporate sides.

I grew up outside of Washington, D.C. in Potomac, MD but have lived in a variety of locations from Greenville, SC to Austin, TX and we are now in the Philadelphia area. I graduated from Towson University with a degree in Business Administration and a concentration in Human Resources.  During my senior year I interned at CDSC in their HR department and as most people know HR internships were non-existent in the early ’90’s.  I learned a great deal and it is there where I knew I wanted to be a corporate recruiter.  I have worked for a variety of firms starting with Manpower, and IT staffing firms before moving in-house with a company called Datastream.  I was their first recruiter and after placing 100 people in six months I was able to convince management that I needed help and quickly became a player/coach manager.  Through my various roles with large and small firms I remained in that type of role.

I am married with three kids and hanging out with them is probably the greatest pleasure I can have every day.  I love sports but I am not a junkie.  I do not keep up with stats or players, I just love watching and playing sports.  I try to be physically fit but since I stopped playing rugby in the 2001/2002 timeframe it has been a challenge.  Next to hanging with my family nothing beats a great workout or run.

I hope you enjoy this site and if the curiousity is killing you, yes I took the above picture.  It is from my parent’s boat on Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland.

    Hi Mark,

    Did you go to Wootton High School and graduate in ’87? Do you by chance remember Wendy Myers? If so, shoot me an email… it would be fun to connect back up with you. If not, disregard this.

    Best,
    Wendy (Myers) Forrester
