Engage Your Business with Success

Dr. Mark Abinante

Dr. Mark Abinante began his career as an entrepreneur at the age of 10, rising at 4:30am every morning to run his business, earning $1000 his first year and $2000 his second year. By age 12 he had hundreds of dollars invested in silver and rare coins, and had purchased his own grand piano. Throughout his high school years, he continued to build and run his business profitably while filling notebooks with ideas for future technology improvements and inventions.

While at the Massachusetts Institutes of Technology, where he earned his B.S. in physics in 1989, Abinante developed a manufacturing technique that greatly enhanced the magnetic properties of today’s strongest permanent magnets. He was awarded a full scholarship to pursue advanced studies at UCLA, where he received a Ph.D. in physics in 1996 to accolades of “this is the strongest candidate to come out of our department in many, many years.”

He has been the creative force behind numerous inventions since then and holds four U.S. and three
international patents.

For the past 25 years, Abinante has married his technological, entrepreneurial and business
management savvy to help companies and institutions grow their business, cut waste, advance their
technology and increase efficiency and profitability. Current and past clients include:

  • Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories: brought in Abinante multiple times giving him carte blanche to find and fix any inefficiencies or bottlenecks. His team focused on making modifications to one component that was suffering from unusually high failure rates. This led to an overall two-fold gain in beam output of their particle accelerator.
  • Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics: Algorithm and processing inefficiencies were bogging down department computer systems. Abinante assessed the problem and created and implemented an alternate algorithm that reduced the computations resources consumed by a factor of a hundred.
  • Hughes Aircraft Systems: turned to Abinante to create innovative wireless communications solutions for their commercial satellite product line. They were so pleased with his contributions that they turned over to Abinante the oversight responsibility for the entire system architecture of a $2B satellite system – the largest and most technologically advanced commercial satellite system ever launched and placed into operation.
  • The Boeing Company: uses Abinante’s services on an ongoing basis to manage key supplier relations, provide assessment and mitigation strategies regarding equipment failure rate and down town and aid new business development activity. 
  • BlackRock, Inc: Abinante works one-on-one with a leading quantitative analyst at the world’s largest asset manager to improve focus, drive and maximize his client’s return on investment. This analyst consistently produces returns for his fund that far outperform the market norm.

In 2012, Abinante teamed up with Carlos Campos to create Peculiar Solutions, serving a diverse set of
clients including Magnetrain Worldwide Group, Hydrogen Energy Works and Engajer, Inc.
