After earning his Master’s, Mark moved to Baltimore to work as an analyst in the Mayor’s Office of CitiStat. Mark was quickly promoted to Deputy Director and led a team of analysts to measure, monitor and analyze city agencies to improve efficiency and efficacy through monthly meetings. Under Mark’s leadership, CitiStat developed OutcomeStat, a collaborative program synchronizing performance management (CitiStat) and outcome budgeting (BBMR) under a united plan for the City.
