Mark Orttung is CEO of Nexient, the largest domestic pure-play technology services provider in the U.S. The company is based in Ann Arbor and has grown from a 8,000 square foot facility to over 66,000 square feet with plans to add 150 people. Mark attributes this growth to Nexient's ability to build software at a rapid pace and meet clients needs.

During his conversation with Paul Krutko, president and CEO of Ann Arbor SPARK, Mark explains that talent was a deciding factor in Nexient choosing Ann Arbor for their major delivery center. He discusses the company's ability to access to highly skilled talent and the attractiveness of living in Ann Arbor to draw talent from surrounding states. Mark also explains how Ann Arbor's lower cost structure versus other cities across the country is a competitive advantage.
