Conscious Capitalist, Venture Investor, Public Speaker and Private Equity Adviser

“In my heart, I know hard work made me.”

Mark Hamade is a Conscious Capitalist, meaning he passionately respects People, the Planet and Profitable enterprise, and believes that organizations have a responsibility to uphold all three Ps equally. He is an accomplished, visionary senior executive with more than twenty years’ experience in driving revenue growth, building world-class teams, enforcing cultures of excellence, strengthening operational effectiveness and increasing profitability.

His career spans multiple industries, including renewable energy, enterprise software, industrial engineering and IT services. Mark is globally minded and globally well connected, having established offices in Mexico, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the Far East. He maintains business connections in over 50 countries, including those with the wealthiest economies.

Sarah Bernhardt said, “Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.” Mark tirelessly models his strong conviction that philanthropy is sustainable in our personal lives. He advises 11th and 12th grade Milken Community School children as part of their Milken Shark Tank project. Mark also mentors college tech students at Caltech FLOW, has travelled to Costa Rica to help an impoverished village and actively supports Face Forward, a non-profit organization committed to aiding female victims of domestic violence.

Mark’s positive, energetic speaking style makes him a sought out national speaker, radio guest and host. His platform is promoting women in business, (he serves on the board of Alchemus Capital, a women-lead venture capital fund) learning from successes as well as failures, and conscious capitalism. While acting as COO of PKM Steel Service, Salina Steel Service and MSS Transport in Kansas, Mark was asked to host a weekly radio show called “On the Mark with Mark Hamade.” He is a frequent blogger and is cited in journals, magazines, and newspapers. Mark has over 300K followers on twitter@markhamade.

Mark Hamade was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1974 and immigrated to the United States in 1985. Since losing 170 pounds in 2013, Mark has become a fitness enthusiast and enjoys running and going to the gym, eating right, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
