“Without a doubt the best I have ever worked with in over 30 years of professional practice. My practice is tech based, fast paced, service oriented and we depend on the product lines offered by a large national company. Equally important in my world is the personalized service typically only found in small companies. Service, attention to detail, immediate resolution of any problems is imperative to the daily success of our practice and my personal and professional expectations. Mark, as Regional Manager always delivered with absolute ease. Professional, personal, consulate problem solver. A rare combination of professional talent.”
