We are happy to welcome Mark Sauter as a full-time employee, in the Implementation and Engineering Services group led by Karl Davis. Mark worked at ACS previously as a summer intern before he graduated from Grand Valley State University this past May.
Mark earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from Grand Valley, although his first major was actually creative writing. He enjoys the problem-solving aspects of computer programming and the satisfaction of building something from the ground up and then seeing it in action.
Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Mark recently got married to another Ann Arbor-ite, and the couple makes their home in their native town. Mark and Lauren have known each other since they were four years old, as their families were friends and attended the same church. The two only began dating in college, however, and got married last January.
When he's not working, Mark enjoys playing hockey and other sports, as well as playing the guitar and the violin. Occasional computer games make their way into the schedule as well.
We—and that includes older brother Paul Sauter, also an ACS engineer--are pleased to welcome Mark to the ACS family.
