"Joining forces with Mark and Sadovnick Partners has been a discussion that we started to explore", said Jean-Louis Alpeyrie. "Having known Mark for several years, interacting with him both on a personal and professional basis has allowed me to come to know him quite well, and I have been impressed given his track record and reputation, industry expertise, enthusiasm and ethics. He truly embodies the firm's motto of 'Be Remarkable, Make a Difference."
“Jean-Louis is an individual with global exposure, a stellar reputation of ethics, high integrity and trust, with a portfolio of achievements that is outstanding. To say we are excited of the great opportunities that lie ahead and the work we will do together is an understatement.”
Earlier this year, Mark and Sadovnick Partners teamed up with Mike DiGregorio to establish a Board Advisory Practice. A former corporate executive of several public and private companies, including most recently Korn Ferry International, Mike has worked closely with Board and Committee members for the past 25 years. He currently sits on three public and two private company Boards, and multiple Audit, Compensation, Nominating and Governance committees.
Together, Mark and Mike have been advising clients together for the past six months. Seeing this, Jean- Louis noted that he “is excited about building on their early success.” He has dedicated extensive time as well working with Boards, and will be an invaluable and complimentary addition, forming a new trio with synergistic experience to help talented professionals achieve Board membership, and to assist companies looking to enhance the depth and breadth of their Board talent base.
