Biographical Information

Mark Loye is the Director of Jefferson County Mediation Services with over 25 years of experience as a professional in the dispute resolution field, with training and experience in mediation and facilitation areas including multi-party environmental and land use, business, organizational, EEO/workplace, divorce and child custody, real estate, task force and group facilitation and other specialized areas.  His educational background includes an undergraduate degree in biology from Stanford University and graduate degrees in ecology (Cornell University) and public administration (the University of Denver), as well as 453 hours of varied mediation training.  He has conducted training seminars in dispute resolution for the federal government, local governments, the U.S. Postal Service, private training organizations and at professional conferences.


Mark’s work history includes an eight-year stint as a regulator and administrator for the Colorado Mined Land Reclamation Division, followed by over six years as Aggregate Coordinator for Jefferson County (facilitating and mediating multi-party public dialogues on land use requests such as rock quarries, land fills, etc.) and its de facto Solid Waste Coordinator.  In 1993, he was part of a team that developed the County’s new Mediation Services program and became its first Director on January 1, 1994 (a post he continues to hold today).  He also works under contract as an EEO mediator for the U.S. Postal Service (132 cases, to date) and has his own private mediation practice under the banner of Mediation Works 2, L.L.C.


Mark is a member, past Board of Directors member and member of the Marketing and Legislative Committees of the the Mediation Association of Colorado.  He qualifies for the title of “Professional Mediator” in that organization in the Civil/Community area (meaning his experience allows him to receive referrals through that organization).  He is also a member of the international Association for Conflict Resolution, the National Association for Community Mediation and (from his days as an environmental professional) a member of the Society for Range Management.  In early 2011, he was also appointed as the Community Conflict Resolution Representative to the Advisory Committee for the Colorado Office of Dispute Resolution.  Finally, he presently serves on the First Judicial District Access to Justice Committee, a group committed to maximizing access to all aspects of the legal system for all citizens.  Mark is a committed member of the Colorado dispute resolution community.
