CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Mark Beese relentlessly contributes to the understanding of what it takes to effectively lead law firms and to market their services. He does this with passion and an unfailing sense of humor and enthusiasm. He has brought his experiences outside the legal field to the law firm world, which has added a broader perspective to his work. Outside of his own consulting business, Mark is meaningfully involved in local community organizations and in professional associations. He exemplifies the adage, “If you want to get something done, give it to a busy person.” Mark is never too busy to help his colleagues, clients and those in need. An Eagle Scout, Mark is an exemplar of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. I’m pleased to welcome Mark Beese as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management.
