Vale Mark Christensen
On the 27th of December 2014, Synergies sadly lost a much loved and valued colleague, Mark Christensen. Mark has been associated with Synergies since it was established in 2004. Over that time, he made a significant contribution to the firm, both in the quality and insightfulness of his work and the way in which he enriched the lives of all of our staff.
Mark was a highly gifted teacher and mentor. He also loved working with data and was highly adept at analysing and finding solutions to problems. He had a unique capability of being able to break down complex issues and communicate them in way that people could understand. He was always patient and generous with his time and operated with the highest integrity. He was widely respected in the business community and his expertise was highly sought after, particularly in education and training.
Mark has left a void that will never be filled. Mark’s technical and analytical ability and financial acumen were well known. However, for those who worked with him, these attributes were only part of what made Mark special. We’ll particularly miss his authenticity, his understated manner, his generous nature, his humour and his positive and outgoing style that would invariably lift the spirits of those around him.
Mark has left an enduring legacy. The courage and strength he showed in fighting his illness has inspired all of us. His positive, “no worries” approach to life reminds us not to take things too seriously, and his love for his family and travelling with his wife Sue reminds us of the things that are most important. Our love and support are with his family.
