Mark King
Director of Community Outreach

Mr. King is a transformational leader with a competitive, entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for helping people.

Born and raised in Inkster, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, his Motor City blue-collar work ethic and passion for basketball led him to the University of Pikeville to play college basketball and obtain a college education. Years later, warmer weather and an opportunity to continue playing basketball professionally compelled him, along with his wife to relocate to Orlando in 2005.

Upon obtaining his Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) from Palm Beach Atlantic University, King accepted a business development opportunity with a small law firm dedicated specifically to the practice of community association law. He found exceptional success, adding hundreds of new community association clients to the firm’s portfolio, which in turn resulted in these communities recouping millions of dollars via the collection of delinquent assessments. Seeing the importance of leadership development, King amplified the firm’s focus on continuing education courses and seminars, drastically increasing the number of board certification course offerings and helping thousands of new board members receive proper certification to serve their respective communities.

King is also the proud owner of the Florida Flight, a minor league basketball team that utilizes the platform of professional basketball to invest in the lives of others. He’s accepted dozens of guest speaking opportunities, mostly via the AVID program where he shares his underdog story of success in business and basketball to motivate and inspire young students to find the same ambition to pursue their own dreams. He’s also accepted several guest speaking requests from the DeVos Sports Management School at the University of Central Florida.

King’s role as the Director of Community Outreach will include expanding the firm’s community association practice, with an emphasis on creating new, innovative solutions that help communities discover and embrace the advantages of living within a deed-restricted community. He’ll also be responsible for finding ways to utilize and leverage various community relationships to foster greater results and community impact.
