Mark was born into the heating and air conditioning industry. His father was an air conditioning mechanic with UC Davis before opening Blake’s in 1973 and his older brother worked for a large heating and air company in Sacramento doing ductwork on large projects such as Arco Arena. Mark was born and raised in Davis and attended Davis High School.
After graduating from the Universal Technical Institute in Arizona in 1985, he returned to work at Blake’s as an installer/service technician. He took over as General Manager in 1992 and shortly thereafter as owner. Mark is a “hands on” business owner and takes great pride in Blake’s quality, service and installations.
