This opportunity came in the form of a role as Vice President for Sales in a multinational company. The challenge for Mark is that he is moving not only into a better role but also a new industry. He is a focused person and always relishes a challenge. However, getting into a different industry presented a new challenge for Mark which caused some nervousness.
