DHA has worked globally for clients including Marriott Corporation, Hilton Hotels Worldwide, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Disney, Best Western and Wyndham, well as other major hotel firms and boutique hotels.

He has decades of experience directing design, manufacturing, delivery and installation logistics around the globe.

From supplying furniture and fixtures for hotel rooms, public spaces, and foodservice outlets in hotels, resorts and timeshares; to sourcing products such as vanities, lighting, granite, tile and stone, Mark has established deep relationships in major exporting countries.
