Mark L. Krinsky

As an Executive Career Coach, I apply 25+ yrs. of experience as both a Coach/Adviser and executive recruiter in working with a broad spectrum of business professionals. Utilizing keen listening skills and introspective analysis, I work with clients to 1) understand their backgrounds, 2) assess career objectives, (3) revise and improve resumes, 4) conduct mock interviews and 5) provide assistance with job offers and prospective employers.

A native Houstonian, I graduated from Colgate University (Hamilton, NY) with a liberal arts degree and Columbia University (NY City) with a master's in healthcare administration. After starting my career in New York City with an academic, regional medical center, I worked in executive recruitment firms in the Midwest (Chicago and St. Louis) before returning to Houston.

I participate in a broad spectrum of continuing education activities that sharpen and expand my Coaching skills and knowledge.

My purpose is to collaborate with each client to improve every aspect of his/her professional profile and help establish a process for securing a new role. It's attributed to the philosopher Socrates that “the key to change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."

I enjoy collaborating and celebrating with clients as they grow professionally and individually.
