Mark is founder and director of DCS School Outfitters, now the biggest supplier of school wear and embroidery of corporate work wear in the Highlands.

The young entrepreneur launched a website and bought an embroidery machine when he spotted a gap in the market just two years ago. As the orders got bigger, he got a grant from the Prince’s Trust, bought a bigger machine and added new lines to his ever-growing website.

Mark now employs five full time and three part time staff and has a number of major oil, gas and utility companies like Babcock, Balfour Beattie, Scottish Water and Morrison Construction as clients.
