Accounting Business Partner to Middle Market Companies

Providing more than numbers when helping business owners and CFOs thrive in their business

I have been in public accounting since 2001 focusing on accounting, auditing and business consulting.  Specific experience includes consolidations, manufacturing, construction, distribution, entertainment and production, broker-dealers, and not for profit entities.  Clients range from start-ups to multi-national corporations.  I approach my business with the same attentiveness and respect as I do with my family.  Interesting facts are that I coached and played baseball in Munich, Germany for the Gauting Indians and played American Football for the University of Stirling in Scotland.

    Westlake Team Meeting

    Guest speaker!

    Alexandre Mars is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author. He began his career as an entrepreneur at 17 by creating a concert organization company at his high school. At 22, he founded A2X, one of the first French web agencies, which he sold in 1998. Alexandre then entered the world of venture capital, operating between the U.S. and France. In 2001, he launched Phonevalley, a mobile marketing agency sold to Publicis six years later. In 2006, he set his sights on the fledgling social media industry and created ScrOOn, which he went on to sell to Blackberry in 2013.

    After selling his last two startups and while living in the U.S., Alexandre Mars put his expertise as an entrepreneur to work for social causes. He conducted market research into the philanthropy sector and in 2014 created Epic, a global foundation that identifies, selects, supports, and monitors organizations in order to catalyze their direct action on underserved children and young people, but also on the ecosystems that affect their lives. Epic is based in New York and has offices in Paris, London, Brussels, and San Francisco. In 2019, the Harvard University Kennedy and Business schools published a joint case study on Epic, highlighting the singularity of its model.

    Pasadena Team Meeting

    Zach Shor is the SVP and Head of Social for TOCA U.S, a new entertainment concept transforming how we meet and play, built around accessible and interactive football-based games. After graduating from NYU in 2010 and a brief stop teaching kindergarten for a year (a job he'd gladly take again!), he joined a small start-up called Topgolf, leading their real estate development program. Over five years at Topgolf, he led the growth of the concept from three units to 50+ all over the US, along with being integral in the financing and design of the venues (and getting his MBA part-time from SMU). After five years of growing the concept domestically, he moved to help start the international division as the COO, overseeing their global expansion for over 2 years. 

    After racking up enough air miles to make a pilot blush, he decided on a "mini-retirement" of six months - which only lasted three (but what a glorious three months they were!). During that time, he and three others co-founded Lagniappe Capital Partners, a small PE company focused on providing capital to hospitality and entertainment concepts at the angel and venture level. Never thinking he would work for anyone but himself again, he got a call from the CEO of GameStop and joined to start an entertainment division, which later evolved into their internal innovation practice. After two years, he was lured back into hospitality and entertainment, joining TOCA Football as the Head of TOCA Social US, overseeing the creation and growth of a brand new entertainment concept based around soccer, while helping to manage Lagniappe Capital Partners and their portfolio companies. While Zach has forgotten what spare time feels like, he is very happy in Dallas with the love of his life Jessica, and their Italian Greyhound, Ovaltine.
