Prior to joining Batuta, Mr. Mark was a Senior Analyst/Junior Portfolio Manager at BTG Pactual ('BTG'), a Brazilian investment bank, co-managing a $2 billion portfolio of distressed, high yield and special situation equities. During such time, Mr. Mark led official and ad hoc restructuring committees and advised BTG investment bankers in the restructuring of several South American companies, including OGX, SMU and Nextel International. Mr. Mark is experienced in investment analysis (credit and equity) in the energy, metals & mining, general industrials and telecommunications sectors across North America, South America and Europe.

Mr. Mark received a BA in economics and French literature and an MA in economics from Indiana University in 1990 and 1993, respectively, and during such time Mr. Mark completed PhD course-work in mathematical economics, international economics and development economics.
