Mark is a financial executive with 35 years of industry and consulting experience. He began his career guiding and assisting companies in operational roles. Growing to CFO levels with several organizations, he helped guide growth and operational efficiency providing support to all levels within the organization. His interest in systems and processes drove the development of skills ranging from desktop tools, system selection, design, and integration, and data management and reporting.
Beginning his career in various industries, Mark gained valuable “real life” experience directing accounting departments and assisting other operational departments with their processes and reporting needs. As his career progressed, he realized the growing need for accounting and finance groups to be more active and engaged in the systems that supported the business. Mark joined McGladrey where he was responsible for system selections and implementations, honing his skills of quickly learning and identifying clients needs. A stop at ADC Telecommunications as a SAP implementation team member and it was off to consulting. GMAC/RFC, Thomson Reuters, HB Fuller, Prime Therapeutics, Heraeus Medical Components, and FABCON have all benefited from his business and systems insights.
As a CPA (inactive), Mark credits his operational background for developing the skills necessary to effectively provide both business and systems consulting. Like Jon, he is also a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, where he earned his Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting as well as a minor in Data Processing.
