Mark Congiusta

Senior User Experience Manager at Cisco Systems

@interactivemark

Mark is a Senior User Experience Manager at Cisco Systems in Galway where he leads teams of interaction and visual designers building software and applications for some of the world’s biggest Fortune 500 companies.

Mark has spent the better part of two decades working in, through and around the interactive design profession. Starting in architecture (the building kind) then industrial design (the product kind) and graphic design (the web kind) onto computer programming (the RIA kind) then digital marketing strategy with a bunch of social media management thrown in (the advertising kind) to finally arrive in the world of user experience, there aren’t too many pixel-related designy type jobs that Mark hasn’t spent at least some time doing. But home is where the heart is and these days that’s full bore UX razzamatazz.

Mark has a BA in Industrial Design from the State University of New York in Buffalo and a Masters in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design as well as a fondness for quality beer and the occasional cigar that his wife doesn’t know about.
