Executive Vice President - Worldwide Commercial Business
In college, Mark Morgan was a walk-on quarterback at Michigan State University. While he didn’t get to play on Saturdays, he would run the scout team offense against the starting defense each week. His role was an important one to get the offense ready for the big day. That’s how Mark views his job today. As the EVP of Worldwide Commercial Business, Mark’s job is to get the sales teams ready for the big wins each quarter.
Mark is obsessed with delivering customer value. His role is to ensure adoption, consumption and value realization of the company’s solutions across the customer base. Mark believes that for every $1 of investment, Blue Yonder should deliver back $25 of return.
Mark enjoys the opportunity to work with fantastic, diverse teammates on a global basis, as well as engage on so many challenging and interesting business problems for Blue Yonder’s clients. As he puts it, work is a lot more fun when no two days are the same.
Off the work field, Mark enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and three sons. He enjoys playing tennis, golf, and waterskiing with his family on the weekends.
