MARK VUCINICH

President/Chief Executive Officer

Mark was hired by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1987. For the majority of his tenure with the LAPD, he worked a highly specialized anti-gang task force identified as "OWB CRASH." He also worked patrol for the Los Angeles Raiders in the Los Angeles Coliseum, off-duty crowd control at various Hollywood movie sets, VIP and dignitary protection details, as well as fraternity parties at the University of Southern California.

In 1994, Mark was hired by the Boise Police Department, where he currently holds the rank of Police Detective within the Special Victims Unit. In 1995, Mark began working in the field of crowd management for the Taco Bell Arena, the Ford Idaho Center, Qwest Arena, and the Western Idaho Fair, to name a few. In 1999, he was offered the position of Director of Security for Events at Boise State University. The valuable experience he gained working in this capacity is what eventually led to the formation of MAV Event Services.
