Work With Highly Knowledgeable IT Pros

Mark E. Howie | Principal

ABT | Abacus Black Technologies was founded by Mark Howie in response to the need for small to medium-sized businesses in the South East to have access to a full-service IT department without the overhead expenses of in-house systems and personnel.

By standardizing resources and processes, Mark has created a lean IT service that saves his clients thousands (and some hundreds of thousands)  of dollars in overhead every year.

Starting as an entry-level tech, Mark has climbed the information technology ranks of the AEC industry in experience, education, and certifications. By working his way through the ranks, he has been able to spot and remove inefficiencies and cost overruns.

Mark has worked for over ten years to bring the best in IT services to companies such as:
Tutor Perini Corporation (TPC), Roy Anderson Corp, Rudolph and Sletten, Perini Management Services, Tutor Perini Building Company, Fisk Electric, Frontier-Kemper Constructors, Black Construction (Guam), Lunda Construction, Superior Gunite, Desert Mechanical, Nagelbush Mechanical, Becho Incorporated, Five Star Electric, WDF, and many more.

Mark is a US Army veteran, married to his soulmate of 27 years, and father of two.
He resides with his family and two dachshunds, just north of Ocean Springs, MS.
