Mark’s management career in Formula One included more than a decade on the
management board of the highly successful Jordan Grand Prix team, running the world
famous Cosworth engine business and establishing the commercial arm of Red Bull
Racing which went on to become 4-times World Champions. During his career he has
worked with many of the sport’s leading drivers, including former World Champions Ayrton
Senna, Michael Schumacher and Jenson Button. He still works closely with a number of
the sport’s major stars including David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen and Jacques Villeneuve.
Mark’s career in Formula One started in 1983, spending seven years working in the media

Grand Prix team in 1990. He was a member of the team’s management board, having full
responsibility for the team’s day-to-day marketing and commercial activities. He became
part of the newly created Red Bull Racing management team in 2004, and was invited to
lead Cosworth’s return to Formula One as an engine and technology supplier in 2010,
overseeing its supply of one-third of the teams on the starting grid.
Along the way he founded Status Grand Prix, which won the 2009 Motorsport World Cup
of Motorsport and became a race-winning team in junior formulae as well as competing in
the Le Mans 24 Hours sport car race. He helped developed the new hybrid petrol-electric
engine regulations introduced into Formula One in 2014, and recently published his
second book – ’The Business of Winning – Strategic Success from the Formula One track
to the Boardroom’. Between 2005 and 2009 Mark was motor sport consultant to Disney
Pixar on CARS and CARS II.
