Mark Fowler began his career with the City of Concord in 1989 in the Engineering Department and became the Water Resources System Coordinator for the distribution and collection system in 1992. With the merger of the City of Concord and the Cabarrus County utility systems, Mark was appointed Director of the collection system in 1995. Starting in the early 90’s, Cabarrus County experienced explosive growth which was a challenge for utility systems to fund as well as stay ahead of the growth curve. As a result of this growth and annexations, the City of Concord collection system quickly grew to one of the largest in the State.
In 1998, Mark was appointed by the Concord City Council to serve as a member of the WSACC Board of Directors. Mark served as a Director, Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Board until November 2011, at which time he resigned his position on the Board to accept the position of Facilities Director for WSACC.
Mark earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology from East Carolina University.
