Although Mark’s background is in investment banking and private equity, his career ultimately took a different trajectory into the health food space due to personal experiences he was facing while working long hours and trying to eat healthy. While working as an investment banker, Mark had trouble finding quick and healthy food options. He found it difficult to find the time to cook, and found that so-called “healthy” alternatives in the frozen food aisle were packed with preservatives. It was then that Veestro was born – healthy and delicious meals, ready to heat and eat. Mark has always been a firm believer in the fact that eating healthy and exercising regularly can have a huge impact on the way he looks and feels. Mark earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor of Science in Corporate Communication from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from Babson College.
