Mar GallowayMark Galloway
President/Partner
Passion: Making things work better

Curious down to the details his entire life, Mark started his career in accounting before deciding he needed a little more excitement (not that we have anything against accountants). He joined Lawson Software to support its accounting software and went on to help develop and market various software products, including leading the implementation of Lawson Software’s vertical market strategies as Vice President of Industry Marketing and Business Development.

Due to his innate drive to take things apart in order to make them work better, Mark left Lawson to stretch his entrepreneurial side, first with Adaytum, where he helped take a startup analytics company and build it into the world’s leading enterprise e-Planning solution that was ultimately sold to Cognos, then with Wire the Market, a business development services firm that generated more than $500M in new business opportunities for their enterprise technology clients. He next joined Sight Creative, a B2B marketing agency, as a partner focused on developing customer engagement automation tools before helping found OppSource.

Mark is all about building the ultimate lead machine so that the sales and marketing functions can work better. At OppSource, he and his teams are constantly focused on finding a better way to leverage technology, processes, and marketing best practices to make the funnel go faster and further.
