RIP: Mark Graham Brown

I just heard from a friend last week, who had heard from Mark’s wife, Holli, that Mark had passed away after a short illness. Holli informed Jonathan on November 6th.

I’m still in shock. Mark and I talked a couple of months ago.

From Amazon:

Mark Graham Brown has 30 years of experience consulting with organizations all over the world on measuring and managing performance. He is a top-rated keynote speaker and instructor for the Institute for Management Studies. Mark had his own consulting practice in Manhattan Beach, CA.

From Guy:

I’ve known Mark since 1979 and our involvement with the NSPI chapter in Detroit. I hired him and his firm while I was an employee at Motorola. And I worked with him from 1984 through 1989 at SWI Inc. with Ray Svenson and my former wife Karen. He left our offices in Wheaton IL to start a California office, but it didn’t work out that way. He became famous for his books on Measurement and his work as a Baldrige Examiner.

He and I last worked together on a consulting gig back in 2003, and our last proposal to a client went out in early 2020. We didn’t get the gig.

I have not been able to find an obituary.

I will miss Mark and his brilliance and his humor.

RIP Mark. RIP.
