CEO Mark Mortenson: From Disney to Science

May 22, 2012 – This session of the BASCS Leadership Speaker series featured Mr. Mark Mortenson, President/CEO of the Buffalo Museum of Science. Mr. Mortenson shared the story of his career from being a Disney executive in California to his current position at the Museum.


He mentioned that his first job was a tap dance instructor, and - much to the delight of the students - gave a short demonstration of his talent. He encouraged students to follow their dreams by acquiring as much education as possible to be a success in whatever field they choose.


After many years of living in a very hectic Los Angeles area, Mr. Mortenson is enjoying living in Buffalo with all it has to offer.
