Mark joined Rice Sullivan, LLC in 2000. As a Principal, he specializes in providing expert audit, accounting, tax, consulting, IT and retirement planning services. Mark has experience working with clients in a variety of industries and currently focuses on working with a variety of businesses including manufacturers, auto dealerships and medical service providers. In addition, he assists with individual personal income tax preparation, and commercial and governmental audits.

Prior to joining the firm, Mark worked at KPMG for two years, where he provided comprehensive audit services. Throughout his career, he has maintained a steady focus on helping his clients succeed, often in the toughest and most crucial situations. In one example, Mark served as a part-time comptroller where he provided financial data to help the organization make sound financial decisions. For another client, he reviewed a significant IT expansion and provided analysis and feedback to aid in the owner’s purchase decision.

Mark was inspired to go into accounting by his father, the previous President and Managing Principal of Rice Sullivan, LLC. He attributes his success to the knowledge he has gained from his father: the mentality of doing whatever it takes to get the job done in a timely manner and a willingness to get involved in the community.

Mark grew up in Belleville, Illinois, and currently resides in Swansea with his wife, Heather, and their four children. While away from the office, he enjoys playing golf, soccer, and basketball. Mark also coaches several youth soccer teams and enjoys spending quality time with his family, especially during the summer at the lake.
