An experienced professional with a strong track record for developing customer loyalty and positive corporate and client relationships, Mark has worked in the “Graphic Communications” industry his entire career and is loving every minute of it.
Mark graduated high school as an entrepreneur, with a full-time printing business started in the basement of his mother’s home. That business developed over the years through various acquisitions and new start-ups.
“Somewhere in my high school journey, I caught an entrepreneurial bug,” Mark admits. “I had a passion for good-looking graphics, whether they were on paper, a wall, or a TV screen.”
After an extended tenure as a successful franchise owner, Mark decided to transition into a fresh, new concept: iPartnerMedia, Inc. It’s no coincidence that the young company is already garnering attention across the United States and parts of Canada.
“The name is an indication of how we truly do business. We aren’t just another contracted company or third party vendor. We develop a partnership with our clients; one that they can depend on and is beneficial to their success.”
Mark welcomes you to consider our team as part of your own and looks forward to speaking with you personally!

A long time ago, in a galaxy really close to ours, there was born a young padawan named Jose Garcia. Raised in Los Angeles, California, it was apparent from an early age that he was fated for success. He received a B.S. Degree in Computer Information Systems from Greenville College in Illinois, where he also played Point Guard for their NCAA team.
We suspect there was a period in which Jose disappeared to partake in his jedi training, for the Force was strong in him when he chose to join iPartnerMedia in June of 2015. He brought with him extraordinary talent and innate abilities to design spectacular websites that rise to the top of today’s most popular search engines.
In his down time, Jose watches the historical documentaries known as A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as he continues to hone his lightsaber skills and study the teachings of the late Master Yoda.
