Advisory Board Member
Mark Blackmon is a strategic organizational communications strategist who helps organizations gain market share through user-focused interaction, and he is also regularly engaged as a management and marketing consultant. He co-founded Chanticleer Productions, LLP, one of the first firms to harness the benefits of emerging new media, and created the first new-media infrastructure for producing, designing, writing, editing, syndicating, and hosting audio/visual programming—a feat which would have otherwise proven cost-prohibitive for most small businesses and nonprofits.
Mark has served as the associate vice president for public affairs and the director of media relations for Earlham College; the head of institutional development for the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival; and the director of marketing and public relations for the Round House Theatre in Bethesda, Maryland. He is also a freelance playwright, essayist, journalist, and general-purpose raconteur.
