Mark has spent most of his 30-year career working with large and small private equity owned companies preparing businesses for sale and working as an executive on the management team to develop and execute a plan to maximize market value for an eventual sale. He comes to Viking with a strong skill set honed over decades of corporate experience necessary to close deals. These skills include financial analysis, business valuation, due diligence, marketing, negotiating and arranging both equity and debt financing.
In 2015, Mark purchased a regional publishing company, owned it for three years, and successfully sold it. He learned over those three years that his heart and passion were rooted in helping business owners with the important and personal decision to sell their business while guiding buyers through the acquisition process.
Mark is a graduate of Walsh University in Canton, Ohio. He began his career with Peat Marwick in Cleveland, Ohio and is a former CPA. He resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife Angie and their six children.
