Markus grew up in Switzerland, worked in the Logistics Department of a manufacturing firm and later in public accounting after graduating from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. After immigrating to the US, he worked as the General Manager of an Interstate Truck Stop. In that role, he sold a Travel Agency, purchased another Truck Stop, and helped found a Commercial Bank. After a stint at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Markus opened his own international consulting firm, providing management consulting services to the owners of small and medium-sized businesses both in the US and in Europe. His entrepreneurial drive led to cofounding a European start-up and a successful Third Party Administrator in the US. Markus lead the company through significant growth to the eventual sale to a publicly traded company. After the sale, he returned to management consulting where he participated in or lead projects in a broad variety of industries including IT core replacement systems, forensic accounting, guiding a small service company through significant growth, mentoring an inexperienced CEO, interim CFO, preparing a company for sale, and managing the due diligence process for a seller. In addition, he served as the CFO and CEO in successful turnaround situations in Texas and Nevada. Consistent with his commitment to entrepreneurship, Markus participated in two Angel Investor Groups working with start-ups and the owners of small to medium businesses and volunteered in SCORE. In addition to graduating with a degree from the Swiss University, he earned a MBA, a post-graduate management certificate from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. in Management & Decision Science.

When not working on and in businesses, Markus enjoys the outdoors, spoils his three Labrador Retrievers, and follows his life-long passion for international professional soccer.
