Change is the only consistency in business today. Technology and its effect on consumers cannot be understated.
That is why we value clarity.
Clarity turns indifference into focus, chaos to order and distance to intimacy. Without
clarity, there is no direction.
Pointing the way helps others help themselves, empowers them to move and to reach
beyond what they think they see.

Mark Ward is the President
of Clear Compass Digital Group
Throughout his career, Mark has established himself as a customer acquisition leader.
From 1998 – 2011, Mark ran America Direct and PharmDirectMail which were data and lead generation pioneers in finance, legal services, home services and healthcare industries. By working with many Fortune 1000 companies, Mark was able to leverage direct mail and, later, email marketing to drive successful customer acquisition campaigns. Client list included Wells Fargo, Amgen, Genentech, Boston Scientific, Tyco and hundreds of other companies.
In 2012, Mark rose to international prominence while director of marketing and creative services for SHOP.COM and Market America. SHOP.COM is a comparison shopping site with over 48 million items and Market America is a product brokerage company with 15 exclusive brand (cosmetic, skincare, vitamins, weight management, pet, jewelry, automotive and home cleaning products). In total, both companies operated 20 websites throughout 7 countries with over 70 million website visits, 3 million customers and 180,000 distributors worldwide.
At SHOP.COM and Market America, Mark proved he was a marketing visionary by creating record breaking omni-channel customer acquisition US and global campaigns such as SHIPFREE, OneLogin System and platform migration. However, his ability to spearhead new product launches for Carmelo's Champion Blend vitamins, Market America's Lumiere de Vie skincare line and many more further solidified Mark's reputation for thoughtful planning, flawless execution and world-class ROI on a global scale. On many occasions, CEO JR Ridinger fondly referred to Mark as "our CMO".
Mark's efforts contributed US annual revenue moving to over $505 million alone. Consequently, Market America jumped from #71 to #57 on the Internet Retailer's US Top 500 ecommerce list. The same year, Market America was named the #1 fastest growing m-commerce business by Internet Retailer. In Q1 2013, Lumiere de Vie launched a 12-month marketing push in the US and Taiwan with first month's revenue exceeding $3 million in each country and over $50 million annually. Overall, Mark's marketing directly contributed to the company's $500 million US annual sales revenue and over $1 billion in annual global revenue.
In November 2013, CEO Tim Sheehan (formerly Best Buy executive) and CMO John Lebbad (former Sear's and HSN executive) appointed Mark to the newly created position of digital marketing and creative director for Lazyday's RV – the world's largest revenue dealership with sales exceeding $600 million annually. In a March 2014 interview with RV Pro, Sheehan eluded to how excited he was to have Mark on his team.
While at Lazyday's, Mark was responsible for the creative vision in marketing planning, finalizing website redesign, managing over 2 million keywords, generating over 5,000 monthly sales leads, overseeing agency relationships, driving over 1 million monthly emails deployment, reporting on KPIs and presenting recommendations to CEO. During his tenure, Mark's effort contributed at least $390 million in attributed bottom line revenue.
In 2015 Mark Ward, who has 20 years of marketing prowess under his belt, was identified as the perfect candidate to meet the ever-expanding, complex needs of Hawke Media. As head of strategy and an outsourced CMO, Mark brought a vast knowledge and decades of experience with some of the biggest ecommerce and marketing firms in the industry. Mark provided the digital marketing vision for companies such as BeautyCon's BFF Box, Rachel Zoe's Box of Style, Buscemi, SunWarrior, Meitu Apps, Razorgator, Flo Music App, Lauren Conrad's Paper Crown, Blue Steel, Thomas Wylde, Beau Ties of Vermont, DermaWand and others.
