MARK S. VALENTI CTS
Founder, President Emeritus

An internationally-renowned technology thought leader, Mark has been one of the most highly sought experts in the audiovisual industry. Through his interactive visioning process, speaking and writing, he has helped business, education, and institutional clients effectively plan for a rapidly-evolving technology-enhanced future. A senior principal of an international architectural firm says, “Mark Valenti has built a world-class organization of technology experts. We turn to Mark and The Sextant Group because they understand the role technologically enhanced environments can play in increasing learning outcomes.”
