Mark began his career in the financial services industry with A.G. Edwards in 1994 as an investment broker, choosing this industry based on a desire to help people avoid the missteps and maximize the opportunities of investing.
"I remember my father telling me a story about his experience in the stock market. He'd lost a large sum of money in the market in 1968. He was successful in business but not in investing, and he said the reason he lost that money was that he didn't get good advice. The only thing I could think about was how that could have grown into a life-changing sum of money today. Once given the opportunity, it became my mission to be an advisor people can trust."
