Mark Reeth

Mark Reeth wasn't born incredibly handsome, like so many are--he had to work hard to get to where he is today. Thankfully, through much blood, sweat, and hair products, Mark Reeth is now one incredibly good-looking Consumer Goods Editor. But Mark Reeth wasn't born a Consumer Goods Editor--he started as a writer for Fool.com, became a Blog Editor, and now loves reading all the latest Consumer Goods news.
