Mark has over 25 years of experience in the healthcare industry, encompassing operations, commercialization and consulting. He has executed numerous M&A, financing and strategic partnership transactions, (from both sides of the fence), for a broad array of middle market and emerging growth companies in technology, life sciences and healthcare services. Mark has a passion for new technology, new “stuff” generally and all things creative.   Originally from the North of Ireland, Mark now lives here in New York.

Mark is currently CEO of Freyeur & Trogue, a technology development company that fosters, develops and commercializes technologies with applications in the Healthcare and Life Sciences markets.

Mark began his career as a pharmacist with the UK retail giant Boots the Chemist and later moved to clinical pharmacy at St. Georges and Kingston General Hospitals in London. It was, however, a love of writing that led him to a new career in advertising - starting as a copywriter at The General Advertising Company of London Ltd. Later, Mark and a partner, co-founded their own unique Health focused advertising agency, which was quickly acquired by WCRS. The company eventually became part of Havas.
