Mark Donahue

SVP Bus Dev/ Exec Producer

Mark came to filmmaking via a successful career in another competitive, high powered and financially driven enterprise; commercial real estate. He began his career as a commercial agent knocking on doors selling large industrial buildings in North Philly. Not for the faint of heart.

After six years on the street, Mark took on a management role and managed 5 Florida offices for commercial giant CBRE. He was soon promoted to Senior Vice President and Regional Manager of CBRE’s Mid-West Region where he managed 13 offices and oversaw a profit center that generated over $90 MM in revenues.

From there he was promoted to Senior Executive Vice President and CEO of the CBRE Partner Program and named to CBRE’s Operations Management Board.

Eventually, Mark left CBRE and formed Commercial Real Estate Solutions which entered into a 10-year management contract with Prudential Real Estate Affiliates. Mark and his team managed Prudential’s brokerage operations and grew revenues from $29,000,000 to over $120,000,000 in three years.

Mark left the commercial real estate business in 2010 and began to fulfill a lifelong dream of writing. To that end, he has written 5 novels and 11 scripts. Mark knew he needed a top production and post partnership and as a result teamed up with Sugar Studios LA. From that initial partnering, Sugar Studios FLA was formed and film history is being made!
