  • Secured a $3.6 million credit line with bank through the development of a 5-year strategic plan with a custom budget forecast and cash flow model
  • Managed banking relationship to maintain seasonal burrowing needs of the business
  • Implemented budget and inventory controls that reduced budget 23 percent while directing an income turnaround form a $500k loss to a $200k profit in one year
  • Managed and help develop new manufacturing and inventory reporting to help in decision making and cost reductions
  • Led new offshore manufacturing expansion of company into Honduras and arranged for $2.25 million from bank to finance the start up

Testimonial

"Simply put, Mark helped me save my company. It has been over 12 years since I first met Mark. At the time I was a budding entrepreneur that had grown my software company to about $10M in revenue and then hit a brick wall. Fortunately, one of my board members knew Mark and in a very short time Mark was able to unravel our financial mess and recommend a course of action to keep us alive."
George R. Linscott, President/CEO, Visicon Technologies, Inc.
