Mark Cerny (born in 1964) is a programmer and producer in the video game industry. He worked with Naughty Dog on the development of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. He did not work on Crash Team Racing. In 1998, he became the president of a new company, Cerny Games. Cerny Games worked with Eurocom Entertainment Software on the development of Crash Bash.  Since Mark Cerny had worked on the series previously, this helped ease the transition in developers. After working on Crash Bash, Mark Cerny would return to work (as part of Cerny Games) in collaboration with Naughty Dog on the Jak and Daxter series.
