PROFESSIONAL PROFILE:
 
 
Extensive background and experience in the chronic disease field with particular emphasis
in diabetes and the numerous health issues related to it, both in the profit and non-profit sectors.   He has spent the last 25 years working actively in the “for profit” sector, launching and running his own companies. Likewise, his contacts in the “non- profit” diabetes realm are equally impressive and vast. Marc pioneered the marketing and sales processes for insulin pumps in the mid 1990’s and his mail order pharmacy was only one of a few that were adept in the sale and education of the insulin pumps and mail order pharmacy medications, medical devices and supplies for people with diabetes.
