Mark Copans is fourth generation Hudson Valley native, Mark grew up working in his family’s accounting firm until graduating from high school. Always being the creative one in the family, accounting was not the right fit even though he always loved seeing the close relationship his father and grandfather had with their clients. After high school, Mark attended College of Charleston in South Carolina where he graduated with a degree in Theatrical Design. He then moved to NYC to begin a successful career as a scenic designer. He worked on Broadway shows, theme parks, television, marketing events, and eventually took a job for a design firm working primarily on large marketing events for major corporations. That experience opened his eyes to how to use his creativity to help advance a company’s image and achieve their goals!
Soon after returning to the Hudson Valley, Mark started Copans Marketing & Promotions to help use his creativity and love of business to help local businesses market themselves more effectively and put them on the path to success. He is known for going above and beyond to help solve client challenges. Mark is one of the most highly trained Advertising Specialists around. He holds a Bachelor of Advertising Specialty Information degree. Mark is one of only 11 people in New York State to have achieved this level and the only one in the Mid-Hudson region. Also a very active member of the Hudson Valley community as a whole, Mark is a Co-Chair of the Ambassador Committee for the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce, member of their Business Education Committee and Past Co-Chair of their Expo Committee. He is also on the board and membership committee for Congregation Agudas Israel in Newburgh, on the committee for the American Cancer Society’s Monster Bash, and Regional Coordinator of Professional Networking Powerhouse group, the fastest-growing networking organization in the Hudson Valley. He likes to spend whatever spare time he has spending time relaxing at home with his children.
