Secret to Success: "Treat the client how you would want to be treated if you were in their shoes."



Mark joined Scheffel Boyle in 1994. He is a senior leader on the Scheffel Boyle Construction Accounting Team and is a Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) through the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA). He is also a co-founder of the Construction Accounting Network (CAN) through the BDO Alliance USA.


Mark’s knowledge of construction accounting practices is extremely valuable not only to his clients in the industry, but also to his team at Scheffel Boyle and the various construction industry associations he is active in. Mark has written multiple articles and has been a guest speaker on numerous occasions over financial matters for the construction industry through the Southern Illinois Builders Association (SIBA), as well as the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and CAN. These include seminars on cash flow management and fraud prevention in the construction industry.


Mark spent his childhood growing up in Highland and still lives there today with his wife, Kristin, and three children. He is extremely active in his local community by volunteering his time and expertise at multiple local organizations. Mark is also an avid runner and golfer and even completed the Chicago Marathon in 2014. He says his favorite part of his job is helping a business grow by figuring out ways to make them successful that they would not have discovered otherwise. He enjoys working closely with his clients, forming a rewarding relationship, and being a resource for them to overcome financial hurdles they face. Mark’s favorite thing about working at Scheffel Boyle is the enjoyable team atmosphere and the “many great clients” he has the opportunity to work with each day.
