Biography

As a Technical Director of IceStar Media, Mark has designed, developed and project managed a diverse portfolio of business-critical technology solutions for high profile clients from a wide range of public and private industry sectors. Mark has applied over 25 years of IT expertise to work with clients to develop and implement bespoke database systems, eCommerce and stock control applications and custom-built technology solutions for clients with bespoke business requirements.

Mark is highly experienced in Magento, WordPress and WooCommerce eCommerce system installations and development. Mark has also provided IT consultancy and project management services to several large UK organisations.

Mark graduated from Essex University with a BSc. (Hons) degree in Computer Science in 1995, has set-up and managed an IT help desk system for The Open University library, and attained professional qualifications in Solaris administration and Crystal Reports. Mark is a real foodie and likes to try out and adapt recipes, and his specialities include various cakes and breads, and his secret chicken doner kebab formula has delighted many a guest over the years! He is also an avid reader and a keen cyclist. Mark has provided hours of technology and systems advice to many local businesses and will go out of his way to research the latest IT practices and protocols to offer clients comprehensive options that best suit their requirements.

I have worked with Mark Bond from IceStar Media for over a year and a half and cannot recommend him highly enough. Some developers talk – Mark delivers! He leverages his extensive technical knowledge in conjunction with years of practical programming and general business experience working on a diverse range of projects across many business types and industries to help you achieve your goals as a business. For example, he brings clarity to a project’s early stages when vague ideas and possibilities are abundant and genuine solutions in short supply. He has the confidence to challenge the status quo throughout the project lifecycle and the requisite skills and experience to back it up with innovative, effective and more efficient alternatives. I also always appreciate how he is able to patiently explain highly technical concepts in a way that makes complete sense to a layperson.  In short, Mark is a professional who offers a lot more than you might expect and delivers on his commitments. I would definitely choose to work with him again.
