Mark started his career with Algroup/Alcan UK at their Bridgnorth site. Throughout his career with Alcan, and later Novelis, Mark has worked predominantly on the cold and foil rolling of aluminium. He has held leadership positions in Operations, Maintenance and Process Engineering.

Following his work at Novelis UK, Mark worked as a project manager for a structural steel company and then as a technological process engineer for a global supplier of metallurgical equipment.
