Mark Thompson


Mark Thompson, MPA, is the fiscal administrative assistant at Middlesex Community College. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University, a master’s from Brooklyn College, and was a PhD candidate at the University of Connecticut. He received a Labor Union’s Writer’s Award while at Brooklyn College and was a Calder Fellow while in Columbia University’s MBA program.

As a Connecticut state employee, Mark scored 100% on a prior state managerial exam. He was a former manager of the New York City Parking Violations Bureau’s first in-house receivables department, and later, one of only three NYC PVB city-wide quality control managers. While in charge of the bureau’s Commercial Billing and Collections Unit, based upon his super-imposed longitudinal design, the unit’s income rose from $1 million to $5 million in the first year.

Mark is the former owner of Vecelli Titian’s “Venus and Adonis” artwork, which was displayed in Washington, D.C. He is a great-grandfather and, as such, a de facto social services provider.
