14 Jul Employee Spotlight: Mark Akesson
Mark is a native Southern Californian and currently lives with his girlfriend and their kitty, nicknamed Bods. Mark is known around the office as a really laid back and quiet guy. While he may be more of a ghost in the office, he is always hard at work at one of our clients.
I asked Mark a few more questions about his work and home life…
How long have you been with briteCITY? I’ve been with briteCITY for almost 2 years, but they acquired me from CCS in September 2015. I have worked the role of an IT professional with CCS since March 2005 making me a 12+ year veteran.
What do you do for briteCITY? I work on computer networks.

What is the weirdest job you have ever had? I haven’t had any weird jobs, although working on computers at people’s houses has been interesting at times. The weirdest thing I ever did for money was eat 1 bite of Fancy Feast chicken cat food for a hundred bucks & I’d do it again.
Where is your favorite place to be? Being home is my favorite, but I love outdoor adventures especially camping.

If you could have a different job for one day, what would you want to do? Motorcycle cop.
What is your favorite Book, Movie & Song? No favorites; if it’s good, it’s good.
Apple or Android? I would prefer a Windows phone, but they don’t have some apps I need. I’d pick Apple over Android all day!
