Mark Larsen


Each month, we spotlight a member of the FCX Performance team. This month, we spoke to Mark Larsen, VP Corporate Vendor Relationships.


What do you do at FCX Performance? 
Sure, managing our vendor relationships and aligning their expectations with our growth goals is a significant part of what I do. Finding new vendors to expand our sales is always an exciting challenge. Oh, and when it comes to the hygienic market and applications, I'm the go-to person in our company.


How does this help the customer?  
My role is all about helping our customers by guiding our team to provide solutions that boost plant productivity, meet sustainability targets, and cut down on downtime. It's rewarding to see how these solutions positively impact our customers' operations.


How did you end up in industrial flow control?
Well, my journey into flow control began when I took on the role of international director of sales at Wilden Pump & Engineering for the Americas, which lasted a solid decade. After that, I spent fifteen years as president of Alfa Laval Hygienic business. That really set the stage for where I am now.


What's the most rewarding part of your job? 
Right now the most fulfilling aspect of my job currently is mentoring the younger managers and OSRs. Passing on the knowledge and experience I've gathered over the years feels like a duty. I was fortunate to learn from great managers, and now it's my turn to pay it forward.


Favorite project you’ve worked on?
Ah, picking just one project from my experience is tough! But if I had to highlight a couple, it would be working on building the world's largest ice cream plant and the world's largest pizza topping plant. Honestly, every project brings its own unique set of challenges and is incredibly interesting.


What flow control trend are you most optimistic about? 
As for what excites me most about FCX right now, it's definitely our expansion into Single-use Disposables within the Biopharma industry. It's a significant leap and holds tremendous potential for us.
