Mark King, Owner, The Pond Doctor, Warrenton VA

Mark King, Owner

Mark King (Owner)

Mark started the company in 2006 with just himself, a magnetic sign, and a pickup truck. In the succeeding ten years the company has grown to include two crews and three trucks.

Ponds have been a lifelong passion for Mark. He built his first pond 20 years ago and ponds have been a central part of his life ever since. Mark is the face of the company and does all the paperwork, sales, and customer service duties. When you call The Pond Doctor for help, Mark is the one you talk to.

Fishing is Mark’s second passion and you may find him on his boat taking your call from his cell phone. Having an experienced crew allows Mark to run a successful company and enjoy a good work/life balance.
