Get To Know the Team at Ascend - Mark Lambrecht

We’d like for you to get to know us! Welcome to the next in our series of “Get to Know Us” blog posts about the team at Ascend!

We recently caught up with Mark Lambrecht, Partner, Account Director and Group Leader at Ascend. Mark was one of the first to join the firm, in 2004.

We’d like to thank Mark for letting us get to know him!

What was the most memorable part of your day today at work?  
ML - Helping new team members assimilate their roles, set expectations and generally help guide them to become successful contributors.
What’s the best advice you ever received? 
ML - Lots to think about here.  Probably from my dad; always treat people like you’d want to be treated yourself.
If you could have one superpower what would it be?  
ML - Shoot in the 80’s again!  (golf)
What is something you have always wanted to try?  
- “Bucket List” type stuff; hang gliding, fly a plane.
If you could win a 'life-time supply' of anything what would you want it to be?  
- Green fees at my favorite golf course; Kapalua, Hawaii.
What do you like to do on your birthday?  
- Enjoy a nice dinner with family; skip the cake.
Favorite movie(s)? Why?  
- “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”  I love to watch what I call “sleeper” movies; those that don’t always pop-up on the radar screen but are amazingly entertaining.
Favorite quote? 
- "It's déjà vu all over again!" (Yogi Berra)
Latest book you read? What did you like about it?  
- “The American Sniper”, by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. Read this before seeing the movie; deep insight into an American hero and the passion that drove him to be successful.
