Headshot of Mark Barrott

Nearly 20 years ago, we moved from the UK to the United States for a work assignment — and never went back. Everything is less stressful, and we love the four seasons. A Michigan summer is so much more pleasant than an English “summer.”

I work with automotive clients to define future strategies, develop executable plans, and help realize their long-term objectives. Many of my clients are automotive suppliers looking to adapt to emerging technologies, market challenges, and risks. They appreciate that I bring innovative solutions to their most complex challenges.

I was attracted to this career because of the variety of projects I could work on. I also love assisting all of my clients. I believe the best client relationships are made by working shoulder to shoulder to achieve meaningful results. I love that this profession challenges me every day.

Recently, I spoke on the challenges and opportunities for automotive suppliers entering Europe at the "Discover Global Markets" conference, which was sponsored by the Department of Commerce. I belong to the Forward Planning Committee of the Meadowbrook Country Club. I received a B.A. in urban planning and a M.S. in economics from Oxford Brookes University in the UK.

Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, golf, tennis, and cooking. Both our daughters run cross country and track, so we love watching them compete in their events.
