I'm Mark Thomas
I was born and raised in southern California where I earned an undergraduate degree in business finance from the University of Southern California and a MBA from Pepperdine University. I come from a prolific and successful entrepreneurial family who have supported my own entrepreneurial path.
During my professional career, I gained extensive senior level experience as President/CEO for privately held, family founded businesses and venture capital backed startups.
In addition, I've owned and operated three successful businesses in Merger & Acquisition Advisory services, UPS and DC Power Systems, and Renewable Energy products for solar, wind and military applications.
Today, my passion is to give back to CEO's and business owners by helping them achieve their most ambitious definition of success in business and in life.
