What better way to find out first hand than from MWA’s very own FORZA team dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and supporting the needs of our wonderful clients!
The focal point for this week’s FORZA support spotlight is on Lee Mark. Lee was born and raised in Norwalk, a suburban city in Los Angeles County, California. For the past 18 years, he has planted his roots into the Grand Canyon State, making Arizona his home.
Lee is a proud alumnus from Assumption University, a private Catholic university in Bangkok, Thailand. As a member of the class of 1999, Lee graduated from Thailand’s first international university with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology before going on to obtain his Master’s in Management from Keller Graduate School of Management in 2002.
Some of Lee’s favorite activities include spending time outdoors whether it be hiking Arizona trails that mother nature carved out or biking through the warm climate that the locals enjoy year-round. He is also an avid fitness fanatic and likes going to the gym on a regular basis. Like many of us reading this, Lee is a regular Netflix binger watching all of the latest Netflix TV shows during his downtime. What is interesting to note is that Lee is a devoted clean-eater and sticks to his vegetarian diet which I admire greatly because it is certainly something I could never do.
Aside from his regular job, Lee owns a restaurant in Phoenix called Thai Rama with his wife of 15 years, Jittiyaporn, who is the head chef. Concentrating on his and his wife’s family origins, Thai Rama is an authentic Thai cuisine restaurant that has become a prominent place in the Phoenix area residents seeking out an incredible food culture experience praised by many. In fact, he and his family – including his two daughters Kate and MaeLyn – regularly spend time in Thailand to visit and receive culinary inspiration for their restaurant.
Lee has been working at MWA for approximately 9 years as the Director of IT. He is one of the many critical employees here that works behind the scenes to ensure the successful uptime and performance of all FORZA clients. He is also one of the most popular people in the office because of his friendly demeanor and staunch work ethic or, maybe, due to the fact that everyone’s internet capabilities and computer functionality reside in his hands could play a role as well. Just kidding, it is definitely the first two reasons!
