We are excited to announce the newest members of our Ohana, Mark Gottlieb and Jackie Blyth, who will be developing in Atlanta, GA!

Jackie was born in Wisconsin but grew up in Canton and Naperville, IL. She attended Western Illinois University and earned her BS in Industrial Education & Technology with a minor in both Marketing and Art. After graduating, she worked in advertising but later took some time off to raise her children.  Both children graduated from GA Tech, and work in their field of study as an architect and an engineer.  When Jackie returned to work, she focused on sales and marketing and is currently a Director of Vertical Markets for a software development company. In her personal life, Jackie has always been incredibly active. During college, Jackie was a gymnast and cheerleader. After graduating, she picked up running, working out, tennis, and golf.

Mark is originally from the Bronx, NY, but moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University, where he earned his BS in Political Science & Government. He made Atlanta his home and later earned his Masters of Taxation from Georgia State University. Working in public accounting, Mark gravitated towards real estate. After college, Mark developed his own commercial real estate development company that he has owned and operated for over 25 years. His company focuses on developing retail shopping centers and single-tenant buildings, primarily in the Southeast. He’s excited about the Atlanta market and is eager to utilize his skill sets in finding his perfect OE location. Mark has three sons - one who plays soccer for the Portland Timbers, another beginning grad school in San Francisco, and one a college senior in Georgia.

Mark and Jackie were introduced to OE through a Consultant and were attracted to our community culture, one-employee, manage-the-manager model. They were impressed with the intelligence, commitment, and positivity of our franchisees during validation, and felt confident in the support of our team after meeting everyone at Ohana Day. In their search for the right opportunity, they also wanted something that they could do together, and they found that their skillsets in advertising/marketing and real estate/financing, was complimentary – making Office Evolution the perfect fit for them. They are excited to start development, expand relationships, and connect with their community through their OE.

Additionally, Mark and Jackie’s timing is perfect as they will be at Convention! They are looking forward to meeting their Ohana, networking, learning from their fellow franchise owners
