Mark Phillips

Founder & Board Chair at HireEducation

Bio Info

Mark is the Founder and Board Chair of HireEducation. He's been recruiting since the late 90s and transitioned into recruiting for Education and Education Technology companies in 2006. These days, he's happy to spend his time coaching his team and working on strategic projects to continue to expand the business! He has personally interviewed nearly 10,000 sales people, sales leaders, and C-Suite executives, so has a broad dataset for discussions involving everything surrounding founding, managing, and growing companies. Along the way, he built one of the largest recruiting companies in the country, saw it crumble due to some deep structural and emotional cracks, and is five years into a rebuild that puts sustainability, emotional health, and community at the center of the business objectives. Therapy, running ultramarathons, sobriety, and family all contribute to his ongoing pursuit of business success and personal happiness.

Professionals interested in hiring systems, sales, remote company culture, sustainable business practices, and mental health at work will benefit from his insights and most likely, from his puns too! Book him now!
