Mark Prigg
Title: VP, Commerce
Education: University of the Arts, London

Mark Prigg is a VP on the Commerce team overseeing the Food and Travel verticals. He joined Dotdash Meredith in 2021.


  • Born in Caerphilly (unsurprisingly also home to his favorite cheese) Mark is a lifelong foodie who began his working life as a dishwasher, waiter, and terrible sommelier. Having grown up in Wales, he knows his bara brith from his cawl, and can make a mean toad in the hole.
  • He’s also one of the few on the food team with experience cooking for gorillas, having spent six months in Cameroon working in a primate sanctuary, helping look after (and feed) gorillas orphaned by the bushmeat trade.
  • A science and technology obsessive, he’s fascinated by the science of cooking, creating the perfect shot of espresso, and Neapolitan pizza. Despite having lived in the US for almost a decade, his go-to comfort food is beans on toast, and he has very strong opinions on how a cup of tea should be made.
