2013 was a fantastic year for the PSC XPages team. We completed work on the world’s largest XPages project, started work for a number of new customers and early in 2014 we are actively looking to hire the best XPages developers available . It is a very exciting time to be taking a leading role within the largest XPages consultancy practice in North America.
With all this comes the opportunity for advancement. I am very pleased to announce that I have been promoted from Senior Consultant to Engagement Manager, and I will be moving from Virginia to Chicago with the family in the summer.
My involvement with the XPages development team has evolved over the past 12 months from that of technical lead to project lead and with that comes different roles and responsibilities within the team. I am not giving up development by any means and although the position is not Engagement “Developer” I will still be very hands on my projects.
I want to thank the entire PSC Collaboration practice and especially the XPage team for their collective efforts over the last 18 months. Without their success and enthusiasm there wouldn’t be a need for someone to take on this role.
I want to thank John Quirk and Andrew Barickman for giving me this opportunity to progress within the company and showing their faith in my abilities and commitment to the company.
Earlier this week in Chicago the temperature was described as somewhere between Antarctica and Neptune, my wife is thrilled……

Good luck with your new adventure :o)
Best of luck with the move, hope all goes well, weather could be worse for you, a move to England right now you would need a periscope just to get out of the house.
Congrats, Marky and good luck for everything!
Moving to another city is a huge step – I know what I am writing about.
So take care 🙂
Congratulations Mark, well deserved. The promotion that is, not the weather 😉
Congratulations Mark. A good move by PSC.
Congrats, Marky! It is a well-deserved promotion. And I look forward to being able to end future arguments about design decisions with, ‘…but you’re a manager now.’
Awesome Dr Marky. I’m very happy for you and your family. A great move by the sounds of things so all the best 🙂
Mark, we are honor to have you come to Chicago and be part of the ICS community here. Look forward to seeing you.
Congratulations! Chicagoland is a great place in many ways; however, you may be wanting some colder temperatures come summer.
Mark, just to add my public congratulations here and note that the DCLUG will miss you. Of course, that also means that now you can be a GUEST speaker instead!
Congratulations to my new Chicagoland neighbor. Do you have an idea where in the area you are going to move to?
Probably Arlington heights area…still trying to figure that out
Congrats on the promotion Marky! I live abou 5 minutes from Arlington Heights. Looking forward to taking you out for a beer!
Lots of good restaurants up that way. We will have to meet up once you are settled in.
Congratulations! Good luck to you and your family with the move!
