Project Development Manager Mark Jones

Mark Jones

Project DEVELOPMENT Manager

Mark joined our team in 2015 as a Business Development Manager, but quickly transitioned to Project Development Manager, where he provides oversight and evaluation for each of our projects. He brings a wealth of management experience to our team, and while it’s possible you haven’t met Mark in person, it’s very likely you’ve worked with him without knowing it. 

Mark’s key role takes place largely behind the scenes. While his day-to-day work doesn’t take place out in the field, the work he does is pivotal to ensuring projects run smoothly and without hiccups.

Mark deals with contracts and various administrative tasks for each of our projects. We realize this is a vague statement, so to give you more context of what we mean, Mark has a deep understanding of the processes we have in place, and helps keep projects on time and within budget. A jack-of-all trades, Mark supports our team with billing, budgets, accounting, executive-level tasks and contracts. His ability to balance tasks and keep our team informed about important project updates is where he shines most. 

Additionally, he’s great at facilitating information and data that project managers need to know, and is very teamwork oriented. We’re fortunate to have Mark on our team! 

What is the most meaningful project?

Levy Park because it’s so visible. It’s woven into the community, even though it’s only been there for a couple of years. I’m pretty proud of that one.

What does it mean to you to be a solution-ist?

What you have to do to be an integral part of the team. We have a target to hit with every job, so what is the solution to getting to that target? That path of least resistance so that we can take on that next project because we didn’t drop the ball on this one. It’s what we’re working here for. If you don’t have solutions that solve any issues that come up, you’re not going to get to the next project.  

What is your favorite outdoor space?

Busch Stadium. I went to the one that was torn down when I was a kid, and to be honest, it wasn’t gorgeous. Now they have this new stadium, and if you sit anywhere behind the plate and look out you can see the famous arch, downtown St. Louis and by the way, there’s a baseball game going on. The site lines are awesome.
