Mark Rogers,
Senior Marketing & Web Development Manager

Mark Rogers

Mark enjoys playing golf and his last known handicap was 2, now that he isn’t a club member and competes for fun. He achieved England school boy status and was also a nifty left footed winger at football where he got to county level.

The route of being a graphic designer became his career choice that progressed him through only a few companies for lengthy periods, leading him to the position he holds now at Elite GSS.

His spare time is spent with his wife and family of 3 children.
