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.
