  • Raised $5 million in first round venture capital for a company

I joined the Florida CFO Group in 2011.

"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."
