Mark Gonska leads the Outplacement Practice for Dise & Company.  He helps employers avoid the second most costly mistake they can ever make:  retaining employees they should release.  Also known as America’s Career Coach, Mark has assisted over 8,000 people moving forward in their careers.  He also works with groups on plant closings and job relocation projects nationally and globally.

He designs and delivers leadership and executive coaching with a method combining People, Process and Passion.

Over the last 20 years, Mark has built a significant network of contacts in business, industry, education and not-for-profit organizations.  Nurturing thousands of personal contacts has proven vital to his success.

Mark’s earlier employment included international marketing and product management positions in a Fortune 200 corporation, successful start-up and development of a technology based company and entrepreneurial roles.  He holds a BA in communications from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) and completed additional human resources study at Baldwin-Wallace College (Ohio).  He is a certified Birkman consultant.

Mark has served on the Board for the Cleveland Society for Human Resource Management and is on the Faces of Hope committee for the Volunteers of America.  A nationally certified professional resume writer, he contributed to the book The Five O’Clock Club Guide to Building a Great Resume.

Mark speaks with enthusiasm and candor on many career related topics.  He’s been interviewed on television, radio and on-line webcasts.  Mark enjoys cycling, connecting with his six children and has yet to convince his wife he should skydive and SCUBA dive on the same day.
