Mark is a graduate of the University of South Florida, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. Mark spent the first nine years of his accounting career with the international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche during which time he served both closely held and public companies, and gained significant experience with consolidations, external reporting, acquisitions and related due diligence. Mark began his career in the audit department of Deloitte where he primarily served contractors, real estate developers and financial institutions. He subsequently transferred to the “Emerging Business Services” Department and as a Senior Manager was responsible for the supervision and oversight of numerous audits of companies primarily engaged in manufacturing, construction and distribution.
Mark left the employ of Deloitte in 1991 and along with a fellow manager from Deloitte formed Beard & Kingery, P.A. (the predecessor to Kingery & Crouse, P.A.). Beard & Kingery, P.A. was primarily engaged in the business of providing attestation services to contractors who were in the business of cleaning up petroleum contaminated sites in Florida.
Because of certain legislative changes related to the aforementioned services, in 2007, the firm began to focus more of its efforts on traditional auditing and tax services. Since such time, Mark has been the engagement or concurring stockholder on numerous engagements, both public and private, and has served as the firm’s President and stockholder in charge of the audit department.
