He and his son were part of an Indian Guides tribe that included Y.O.U.'s founder Don Baker. He and his family moved to Glenview in 1997, but Mark has continued his support of Y.O.U. He joined the Y.O.U. Board in fall of 2009 and chairs Y.O.U.'s Finance Committee.
Prior to his retirement at the end of 2008, Mark spent 31 years as a strategic and financial advisor to not-for-profit healthcare organizations of all types throughout the country. In 1985, he co-founded Kaufman, Hall & Associates, Inc., which is counted among the country’s most respected independent strategic financial and capital markets consultants serving the healthcare industry.
Since his retirement, Mark has come to appreciate life outside of airplanes and hotels. He keeps himself busy with reading and coursework in history, religion and science, karate and other athletic pursuits, involvement in service organizations, and care of his five dogs. So far his family remains glad to have him around more, and he is hoping that his tennis game will improve sufficiently that his wife Shelley will play with him.
He and Shelley have six mostly grown children, Brandon, Megan, Caitlin, JP, Sam, and Michael. Cats, fish and a lizard round out the Hall menagerie.
