All About Mark

By: Nicole Patri

Mark is a pillar of Almar Building and Remodeling, he’s been with us since the early 1990s and celebrated his 30th Anniversary with us on May 1st, 2021. A Licensed Construction Supervisor, he diligently works to make sure that every job is done right. With a real eye for detail, when asked what part of remodeling he likes the most Mark told us, “the finished work.” Mark is incredibly good at all phases of remodeling. Having spent many years in the field he has worked as our Production Manager and expertly oversees all of our projects for the last ten years.

Mark was born in Braintree and is a graduate of Braintree High. His alma mater is Wentworth Institute of Technology where he studied architecture. He now lives in Whitman with his wife Jean and three kids, who keep him very busy when he’s not working. For fun, he likes to spend time at his summer cottage. You can sometimes find him in the office singing to ’70s and ’80s rock.

When Mark started, Almar looked a lot different than we do now. We had a much smaller and less organized team. He spent a lot of time in the field side-by-side Terrance Quinn. They were the dynamic duo. Together, they always wanted to get better and to keep educating our clients. When Allison came on board she worked with Mark and Terry to grow and change the business. Eventually, Mark was promoted into the Production Manager role where he has had the opportunity to help guide countless homeowners through the remodeling process and develop many great carpenters and team members along the way.

Our team and homeowners adore Mark…

“Although there are many things I love about Mark, I give him a lot of credit for trusting me all these years and going along with me as I keep trying to improve the process, even when it is out of his comfort zone.” -Allison Guido

“Mark is the best!
When I first started working at Almar and moving into production, I thought “how does he know EVERYTHING?!'” I was also a bit overwhelmed as I knew nothing about construction, and I wasn’t sure if that would be aggravating to him – but he couldn’t have been nicer. He always has an answer and his understanding of building codes, what will work/what won’t work based off plans, the flow of construction, and vision/planning is very impressive. It’s been a pleasure to learn from him and work alongside him. Thanks for everything you do for Almar, Mark.” -Caitlyn Carvalho

“We talk a lot about family in Almar… and we want our employees and clients to feel like our family…but Mark… is truly family to me. I am an only child and never had a brother.  Every Monday in the fall, I look forward to calling Mark and talking about the previous day’s Patriots game… and talking baseball with him in the summer. Mark has become an important part of my life and my family’s life.  Allison, Gio, Miles and I will never think of Mark as an Almar employee, but as a family member.” –Craig Guido

“I would like to say that Mark, the project manager, was great. Not only is he very knowledgeable, but also, kind, patient, and even friendly. He is a great asset…”-Rose, Halifax

From all of us here at Almar, congratulations on 30 years.
