Biography

Mark Kollar is a partner, strategist and senior executor at Prosek Partners, a leading international financial communications and marketing firm. Mark provides advice and strategic counsel to senior executives and business leaders in asset management, private markets and ESG/impact investing.

Throughout his career in communications, Mark has specialized in developing compelling narratives and storylines to drive business on topics from leadership and entrepreneurship to investments and sustainability and is often asked to manage a wide range of highly sensitive issues and special situations.

Prior to his role at Prosek, Mark was a journalist at Thomas Reuters and Knight-Ridder Financial News in New York, London and Chicago, where he covered the Federal Reserve, business and the economy, structured products, financial markets and the future and options exchanges.
