In a career spanning four decades, Mark has earned a reputation for always getting the job done. Done efficiently and done well. Clients appreciate his common sense, straightforwardness, and honesty. His executive experience extends across the private and public sectors, including the Big Four accounting firms.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Franklin & Marshall College and a master’s degree in business education from Temple University. He was a licensed CPA in the state of Pennsylvania for 17 years before moving to Arizona. He’s spent over 30 years as either a controller, VP of finance, or CFO.
