When it comes to leadership, Marc adopts a more participative style, opting to lead by example and ‘pull’ a team instead of ‘pushing’ them. He thrives in environments in which he can build and manage small, high-performance R&D teams, and daily ensures each team member is set up for success with resources and support to grow—professionally and personally. His passion for mentorship extends to his young daughter, where he is happily teaching her how to program.
