Mark has worked for bp for 20 years as assistant general counsel and has now added the responsibility as bp’s first senior vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).
It was the deaths last year of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor that deeply impacted him and has now lit a fire in his conviction to drive further change at bp.

We are a global business and as such it is paramount to us that the differences we see in the world around us are reflected in our workplace. To achieve this, we are building a diverse workforce by consciously attracting the best people to bp.
