Mark Abbott, Certified EOS Implementer


Mark has significant senior executive, investor and advisory/board experience with start-ups, early stage, and small to mid-sized companies.

Mark’s background includes helping build, and later running, Heller Financial’s industry-leading merchant banking platform, which he grew from less than $2 billion and about 120 employees to almost $5 billion with more than 200 employees.  Mark was also a senior partner of a successful middle-market oriented private equity firm, as well as the founding CEO of a quarter billion dollar commercial finance company.

Mark’s investor experiences include $12+ billion in leveraged loans to 450+ companies, direct private equity investments in 100+ companies (2.5+ times return on monies invested), and investing in 40+ different private equity funds.

Mark’s board experiences include serving as Chairman of the Board of five companies, board-level positions on an additional eight, and a number of advisory board positions.

Mentoring Leadership Teams

While Mark enjoys the lending and investing businesses, his deep passion is helping build scalable and enduring businesses, and helping other entrepreneurs build theirs.  Mark now dedicates his time to helping entrepreneurial management teams as either mentor and/or an investor.

Five years ago, while acting as an interim COO, Mark had what he calls “the great fortune” of being an EOS client and he was “so blown away by how simple, holistic and utterly effective the EOS system is” that he decided the best way for him to help entrepreneurial leadership teams build strong, scalable, and enduring businesses was for him to become an EOS Implementer and teach entrepreneurial leadership teams how to master the EOS system.  Consequently, several years ago Mark enrolled in EOS’s intensive training program, subsequently earned the designation of a Certified EOS Implementer, and is now a part of a worldwide, collaborative network of almost 100 EOS Certified and Professional Implementers.
