Since its inception, Mark Baker has been the President and CEO of the Saratoga Springs City Center. After thirty-three years he has announced that he will be retiring at the end of December. He will be staying on in his current position until the Center hires his replacement. He will also continue in some capacity to assist in the building of the proposed parking facility.
This city has been tremendously fortunate to have had Mark’s services. It has been my pleasure to know Mark. He is a quiet spoken and thoughtful man. During the recent controversy over the parking project I have spoken and corresponded with him on many occasions. His grasp of the smallest detail of the project is consistent with the excellent management of the Center. My interactions with the staff simply reaffirm the positive atmosphere that his leadership has brought.
I know I speak for many when I wish Mark the best for his retirement.
