More than 21,000  executives, business owners and CEOs around the world rely on local area groups to get the most out of their businesses.

Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “Mark has been an accountant his entire business career.  He shatters the mental image many of us may have for accountants!  His caring and concern coupled with his ability to listen and ask great questions is just some of his strengths.  My first conversation with Mark about becoming a Chair I could sense a deep commitment to wanting to give back. Omaha has another valuable asset to support the community and the other Chairs.  Congratulations Mark and welcome to Vistage and the journey in front of you!”
