Biography

Mark Breedveld joined the University of the Fraser Valley in 2005.  He holds an MBA degree from Queen's University and a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia.  Mark specializes in sales education within the School of Business and served as the Department Head and Interim Director of the School of Business from 2008-2011.

Mark started his career working in the management consulting division of Price Waterhouse before moving on to work in product and account management roles in the software and advertising industries.  He has also worked as an independent business consultant, focusing on marketing research, sales lead generation and advertising copy writing assignments.

Description

I have a great appreciation for the professor who pushed me to get my CA designation. Isn’t it crazy how a little conversation can change your life so completely. Keith’s guidance alone has given me a lifetime of happiness and wealth. If I had gone to a larger university who knows if something like that would have ever happened. I am very proud of the route I took, but I wouldn’t have gotten there without my professors at UFV.
