I have had the good fortune of working with Mark Stevens for 35 years.  Mark has made a profound difference in my company, Clarfeld Financial Advisors, and in my life.  Within the business community, and specifically the financial services industry, Mark is well known and often quoted for his second-to-none prowess.  Upon reflection, Mark’s guidance not only entailed every aspect of firm, but he taught me the essence of how to run an ethical and efficient business.


I first sought Mark's advice in 1981, shortly after establishing my accounting firm, and having read his incredibly insightful description of the environment I recently moved on from, “The Big Eight.”  As a sole-practioneer coming from a mega-firm I didn’t know how to market my services in a way that would enable me to achieve the critical mass that I needed to be competitive in my rather narrow specialty, international taxation and estate planning.  Mark’s probing questions as to how I saw my career and life developing over time caught me completely by surprise.  Mark’s contribution to my business was an amalgam of visioning, messaging, management structure and prioritizing my energies.  As we added additional services to our platform, Mark was with me, as both mentor and friend, at every step.  Although he and his talented team created every aspect of our marketing and external communications, I am most grateful to Mark for helping Clarfeld Financial Advisors grow from a one-man shop to where we are today; a multi-family office with a 100 professionals, over $6 billion in assets under management, and widely recognized within our industry as among the very best.  


With the passage of time, I remain even more steadfast in my view that Mark has the sharpest business mind I have ever encountered.  I am fortunate to have had Mark accompany me on my remarkable journey as not just my advisor, but as my consigliere, confidante and friend.  


I wholeheartedly recommend Mark Stevens without any qualification whatsoever.
