Mark has a very pragmatic approach which I particularly value. He continually used his experience to great effect in both his Federation and Police Treatment Centre roles resulting in strong, tangible achievements that move things forward.
I have worked with Mark in both his Police Federation role and his Police Treatment Centre role and he is an absolute pleasure to work with and recommended without hesitation.

I had the privilege of working with Mark for over five years and, after setting up business on my own account in 2003, I engaged Mark’s services and expertise. He is without doubt one of the most honest, sincere and conscientious individuals I have had the pleasure to work with and would not hesitate to recommend him, not only for his professionalism and knowledge, but for his wealth of ‘life experience’.

Steve Edwards - Chief Executive at National Association of Retired Police Officers
Mark is an extremely professional individual, organised and with an eye for detail. He is a good communicator and has the ability to strike up meaningful relationships with people of influence, using those connections for the benefit of and in the interests of his members. He is a tireless worker on behalf of members and his knowledge of police related matters is of the highest calibre in particular in relation to pension disputes, employment issues and general misconduct matters.
I worked with Mark whilst at both the Police Federation and RJW as well as with NARPO and always found him to be an extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable person but always ready to listen and learn more. He is well organised and used to dealing with complex matters involving large amounts of documentation and information having the ability to notice what is important and keep his eye on the matter at hand and not be distracted by trivial superfluous issues.
He continues to work tirelessly to represent both retired and serving officers alike and his enthusiasm for the job is second to none. He is one of the most committed individuals I have worked with, whilst also being one of the most likeable persons to enter into a social conversation with

I spent time working with and under the direction of Mark within the Federation. He is a consummate professional and a man of great integrity, one who is held in high esteem amongst his peers.
During his tenure as Chair of the Joint Branch Board, Marks leadership has been instrumental in the development of enhanced skills and professionalism amongst board members. The service as a whole, not to mention many individuals within the force, have benefited from Mark’s knowledge and skills in the fields of employment legislation and welfare issues.
His work has undoubtedly helped to create better standards of Health & Safety for officers in their working conditions

Kevin Brookes -Manager at Brux Hair and Beauty
There are no words that can describe Marks dedication to his work, the meticulous nature he gives to every facet of his role. No details are overlooked. He has dedicated many years to the role of JBB Chairman, in the 25 years I have known Mark, he has always sat head and shoulders above any other supervisor. He is able to get the job done, correctly, professionally and with understanding and compassion for the member of staff he is representing. Mark will be sadly missed by all rank and file officers. In my opinion he is irreplaceable.
I wish him well in his future career; he will enhance the business of whomever he works for
