Mark Divine is from Upstate New York with a degree in economics from Colgate University and an MBA in finance from New York University Stern School of Business. Mark’s first career was with Coopers & Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouse Coopers) as a Certified Public Accountant. Clients included esteemed financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Weber. Four years after joining Coopers, Mark left behind the corporate world to pursue his vision to become an elite Navy SEAL officer. At twenty-six he graduated as Honor Man (#1-ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/S class number 170. Mark served for nine years total on active duty and eleven as a Reserve SEAL, retiring as Commander in 2011.

Mark embarked on his third career as an entrepreneur in 1996 by co-founding the successful Coronado Brewing Company (CBC) and founding the web e-commerce site www.NavySEALs.com. He later sold his interest in CBC but continues to run NavySEALs.com as the leading website for SEAL gear and information. In 2006 he launched US Tactical, a government contracting business, where he gained contracts with Naval Special Warfare Group ONE for training support and with the Navy Recruiting Command for a nationwide mentoring program for SEAL trainees. This latter program was credited with increasing the quality of Navy SEAL candidates and reducing the attrition rate at BUD/S by up to five percent and was the inspiration for SEALFIT.

Mark was an adjunct professor of leadership at the University of San Diego, where he left a PHD program due to the Iraq War Reserve call-up. In Baghdad with the SEALs again in 2004, he conducted a special study for the Department of Defense on the role of the US Marine Corps in the special operations community. Upon return home he decided to focus fully on his business and family.

Mark is an accomplished martial artist with black belts in Seido and Goju Ryu Karate, a military hand-to-hand combat certification in SCARS, and senior ranking in Saito Ninjitsu. He is a trained Ashtanga Yoga teacher and created the innovative Unbeatable KOKORO Yoga program taught to his students.

After working with thousands of special ops candidates and professionals developing mental toughness, Mark self-published his first book, Unbeatable Mind, in 2011 and launched the at-home study program www.unbeatablemind.com. He is also the author of The Way of the SEAL, published by Reader’s Digest, and 8 Weeks to SEALFIT, published by St. Martin’s Press.

Mark is a highly sought-after speaker for corporations, where his Unbeatable Mind program is helping to forge mental toughness among business leaders. He lives in Encinitas, California, several blocks from the SEALFIT Training Center, the 20,000-square-foot facility where he enjoys training with his family and team.
