Mark grew up in a restaurant family and officially joined Canlis in 2003. A graduate of Cornell University, he served as a Captain in the Air Force and worked for Danny Meyer in New York City before returning home to take over the restaurant. He and his brother Brian spearheaded a generational transfer and brand modernization that has garnered the family business national acclaim as one of the finest and most creative restaurants in America. The 70 years young restaurant is a designated Relais & Chateau property and enjoys the distinction of twenty-four consecutive Wine Spectator Grand awards and three recent James Beard Awards. Mark is routinely called upon to speak about culture, leadership, and brand ingenuity. He resides on Queen Anne in Seattle with his wife Anne Marie and their three children.

About KIROS Bellevue

Welcome to the Bellevue Chapter page. The original KIROS chapter, which held its first meeting in March of 2002, serves Christians in business throughout the Eastside.

We meet monthly for breakfast at Maggiano’s Little Italy on NE 8th Street in downtown Bellevue where we connect, encourage, and equip each other to be transformed by rooted relationship in our personal, KIROS community, and business lives. Additionally, we meet in various small group settings to discuss the intersection of our Christian faith and our work.

The Bellevue Chapter is a place for everyone, not just senior leaders and entrepreneurs, but people from all walks and stages of business life. We work across sectors – financial services, the trades, design, manufacturing, sales, consulting; and with a diverse community: business owners, young entry-level employees, corporate executives, and entrepreneurs. We are intentionally co-ed, providing a safe environment for men and women to interact in a business setting.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Bellevue Chapter, please contact the Bellevue KIROS Administrator at info@kiros.org.
