In this Creating Structure Podcast, our 20th Episode, I welcome none other than Mark Zweig.
Mark is well known in the AEC industry with Mark Zweig Inc., and having been Founder and Chairman of Zweig Group. Mark is now an "Entrepreneur in Residence" and full-time professor in Entrepreneurial studies in the business college at the University of Arkansas. He also writes blogs and articles regularly, which can be found online and in his social media feeds.
Taking a pay cut from his bicycle business to get his first job after MBA school, Mark jumped into the AEC industry in a number of escalating positions involving marketing, HR, and recruiting, prior to starting one of the preeminent AEC Consulting firms at Zweig Group.
We "go to school" in this session talking about Mark's path forward, the AEC industry, A/E vs. C differences, buying and selling businesses, balance sheets, achieving 30% year over year growth, changes in staffing and people since COVID19, Mergers and Acquisitions, return on equity, the value of communication, learning how to sell, and more.
Mark has been an avid collector of cars, bikes, and motorcycles, which we talk about as well.
Also, don't miss Mark's take on "the value of cutting the grass" (literally.)
There's much more to glean in this discussion from the past, the present, and the future. Enjoy, share, subscribe, listen, and please share your comments with the Creating Structure Podcast community. Thank you so much for listening!
