“Apex is a third-generation, family-owned moving and storage company that was established in the 1920s. It’s been part of our family since the 1970s. I took it over from my father and mother in 1984. My son, Cody has been here for nine years. He's being trained to take over in the future. I am thankful to continue this family tradition of serving our community with moving and storage services.” - Mark Duke, President, Apex Moving + Storage
Mark’s leadership, innovation and focus on service to our clients and community have resulted in national recognition and accolades from industry experts. Apex has been repeatedly recognized for its outstanding level of achievement in customer satisfaction. In 2021, we received the Atlas Van Lines Milton M. Hill Quality Award for exemplary service and quality. That was our fourth time winning that prestigious award since 2009.
Giving back to, and meeting the needs of our community is a passion for Mark. Under his leadership, Apex is dedicated to outreach activities, year-round, touching the lives of many people. Most notably, we collect food (from our customers’ pantries) that is not going to be moved and donate it to local food banks through the national nonprofit, Move for Hunger. In 2021 alone, we collected and delivered 819,396 pounds of food! Mark is a tremendous advocate for this cause on a personal level, too. He and his fiancée enjoy hosting pizza parties to reward the local schools and classes that collect the most items for food drives.
Mark takes pride in our team’s commitment to our clients and community. Apex Moving + Storage was built on a foundation of honesty and meaningful relationships. This is reflected in Mark’s leadership style and the satisfaction of our customers and employees, alike. Here’s what some of the people who’ve worked with him had to say:
“In my 38 years in the moving industry, I have never been more impacted by a leader than I have been by Mark Duke. He leads with integrity and compassion; putting people first, making it clear to all that he cares, which is reflected in our workplace and in the work we do for our customers.” - Gary Bergin (Salesperson)
“I met Mark in 1994. We were a couple of “young go-getter’s” and became friends. We built a bond that I cannot explain to this day. As our President, he has always been “hands on” with everything at Apex. He truly cares for the company and all of his employees' success and well-being. I have many great stories over the years but just know that there is not a better owner around.” - Dave McDugle (Driver)
“Superb leadership, thoughtful, kind, patient, understanding, compassionate, goes out of his way for others, accommodating, generous, family-oriented, very knowledgeable and the best boss I have ever worked for.” - Christine Bald (Coordinator)
“I’ve worked for Mark Duke for almost 20 years. Mark is a “giver,” both to his employees and the local community. He is supportive in helping you develop in your role and always there to pick you up and provide support when you need it the most.
I’ve been the recipient of his kindness and philanthropic actions and have witnessed it when he has helped other employees. There is no other place that I could work, as Mark Duke has set the bar and been a shining example as an owner of a company through his generous actions with his employees and the local community.” - Chris Jones (Senior VP of Sales)
“I have worked for Mark for 29 years. He is family to me. We have been through many, very hard times and many good times. He is a very giving person, not only to people he knows, friends, family or his employees. He is so giving to people he hears about that need help. He is always ready to donate to any cause. I could not imagine working for anyone else.” - Ginger Warpoole (Office Manager)
