Mark is Beck’s Chief Financial Officer, responsible for management of the firm’s financial operations. With a background in public accounting, Mark has nearly 30 years of experience, the last 15 in the architecture and construction industry. He joined Beck in 1999 as controller and was promoted to CFO in 2007. Why Beck? “There are a lot of very, very good people here that make the job enjoyable.” Mark’s role touches several areas in the firm – accounting, treasury, financial planning, IT, captive insurance carrier, and the occasional legal or insurance-related issue – which means that every day offers variety. Mark adds that he has “autonomy and flexibility to deal with issues and solve problems.” Mark is involved in the community through board service with the YWCA and the Children’s Cancer Fund. In his off-hours, he enjoys reading and riding his motorcycle. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!) and the SMU Cox School of Business, he’s slowly becoming an Oklahoma State University fan to support his OSU student daughter.
