Mark Derho

Dear Hiring Manager, I am excited to explore opportunities for employment or consulting.

I am a “plug-and-play” professional with extensive experience and proven success in business management and development and the digital marketing and creative sectors; including expert website design and software development, creative and technical copywriting, visual design and video editing, and Google-certified SEM/PPC advertising. When engaging me your organization will acquire a dual force supercharged by AI and ready to hit the ground running. Over the last year, access to world-changing AI-enhanced tools has expanded my skill set and reignited the excitement of the dotcom boom that started my Internet career. AI exponentially upgrades my already significant abilities to perform business services, create media content, write original content, and automate customer service and communications with custom-trained AI Chabots. As the Executive Consultant for Bike Rent NYC, I successfully led the acquisition of a 6-year, $60 million RFP contract with the City of New York, granting exclusive bicycle rental rights in Central Park and all Manhattan parks. Under my leadership, we expanded the company’s operations from 2 to 20 outlets. This key position highlighted my expertise in strategic planning, business leadership, partnership development, contract drafting, software and website development, media and government relations, and operational management. My career, defined by strategic business management, innovative digital marketing leadership, and creative expertise showcases my ability to navigate complex business challenges. This unique fusion of entrepreneurial experience and enthusiasm, and a demonstrated dedication to self-education represents an exceptional blend of qualities ensuring that I can deliver in traditional roles and help shape future-focused initiatives. In 2023, after closing my storefront business, Condado Tourism Center, I continued to offer my professional and technology services independently to local businesses and remote clients. While I enjoy working independently with clients, I am actively seeking more consistency and a position to collaborate and utilize resources within a team environment. Sincerely, Mark Derho
