In his work life, Mark Meuleman’s adrenaline flows into roles demanding new thinking, and redefining boundaries. This ability to learn, adapt and deliver in wildly varied businesses and verticals became clear in successive executive sales and business development roles at Nortel, NewBay and BlackBerry. Happily, at Altus this is an everyday occurrence where this way of working allows him to help clients across almost any vertical, startup through Fortune 500, whether building for the first time, or adjusting for a future of solid revenue growth.
Mark holds an MBA from the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business with a focus on entrepreneurship and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering focusing on telecommunications from the University of Victoria. He’s also part of Grow50, a group of premier Pacific Northwest services firms providing their time to help entrepreneurs determine how best to succeed with their business dreams. Mark’s 25-year marriage and strong family bonds deeply inspire his work and life. You’ll often find Mark competing locally in Cat 2 road bike races.
I've adopted the drive to be competitive and compete at a high level as part of my raison d'être. After early years in gymnastics, I flipped to the hard bashing life that goes with playing Premier Division rugby for 7+ years in British Columbia, but all good things must come to an end.
Over the last years I've transitioned that drive to cycling in the PNW road race scene, currently competing as a Cat 2 as long as this body allows against much younger competition. The reality of life on the bike is many long, hard miles, rain or shine. A key to success is the willingness to re-train every part of your being to push past every limit you believed existed.
