Mark Fera

Senior VP | Aprimo of Chicago | Class of 1989

Nearly three decades later, Mark Fera still remembers the first time he stepped foot inside Altgeld Hall as a wide-eyed biomedical engineering major.

“It was grand,” says Fera (’89), who in December started his new job, as senior VP and managing director of industry solutions at Chicago-based Aprimo.

“The ornate walls, intricate tile work, winding bannisters, were all very impressive and inspiring. I spent a lot of time there, and it was one of my favorite places, save some very challenging classes, on campus.”
