Mark Bertoncino

Mark Bertoncino leads the customer service team for Bühler Aeroglide, providing parts, services and retrofits for industrial drying applications around the world. Aeroglide was founded in 1940 in Cary NC, and purchased by the Bühler Group in 2008. Founded in 1860, Bühler is a privately owned Swiss company with over 14,000 employees, working to create innovative solutions for safe and healthy food and feed, and ensure better mobility for the future through advanced materials.

A native of Delaware, Mark attended Virginia Tech and moved to North Carolina in 2000 to pursue a career in Surveying. This interest quickly shifted to Land Development Management, working on projects in the Raleigh area as well as Burlington. After 8 years, the softening housing market forced Mark to change careers to manufacturing sales and operations at Madern USA in Apex, and then on to Bühler in 2015. Mark also serves as the current Chairman of the North Carolina Triangle Apprenticeship Program, a partnership of 10 local companies dedicated to mutual workforce development through recruitment, education and training of talented high schoolers.

Mark and his wife Michelle have a daughter and twin sons, and they live in southwestern Wake County with their 3 dogs, 2 cats and several chickens and turkeys.
