I’d like to focus the client spotlight on Mark Brenwall. Mark gets the award for “Client in the Most Exotic Location”. We enjoy working with Mark because he is proactive in managing his business and he is constantly trying to improve his systems. Kaizen Mark! He asks good questions as he ties together operational changes back to financial performance. We love being on his team and want you to know a little more about him.
