Mark V. Polla

Branch Manager

There aren’t many parts of the broadcast and production industry that Mark hasn’t touched in some way. His interest in technology began way before it was cool to be a nerd, in the middle school AV club. After graduating from American University, his attention turned to all things video. Starting as a broadcast engineer and then transitioning to the business side, he pins his career success to always putting the client first. He also puts a great family and rescued Greyhound first, and searches for the ever-elusive work/life balance in the kitchen, yard, and music cave, all while being a huge Washington Capitals fan. He looks forward to discussing with you the value and return achieved when making an investment in FMC training.
