Mark Richards
VP of Finance and Operations, RBA Consulting
Mark’s finance background started with traditional accounting & analysis roles, but really built experience with an ‘outside-in’ approach by becoming heavily engaged in revenue generation, marketing, operations and M&A – with his roles and assignments taking him to 140+ cities in 15 countries. Along the way, Mark has served in roles in business development and marketing, which further helped to deepen his business view to become a better finance executive. He often shares the view that ‘finance is the punchline, with sales and operations being the set-up’, and that to be a good finance executive that you must work to understand the business like the CEO.

Prior to RBA, Mark held a global marketing role at SAP, focusing on cloud-based offering for customer engagement, commerce and finance. He was a start-up CFO for 5 years working across multiple industries, SVP Finance for the Royal Bank of Canada’s U.S. Wealth Management division and International Finance for Carlson Wagonlit Travel.

For Proformative, Mark has been on the Advisory Board since 2009, writer/instructor for careers, and presenter for numerous webinars and CFO Dimensions.
