PARTNER

In October 2013, Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to start his own business, Mark Goldhar Inc, providing bookkeeping, tax, consulting and CFO services to select clients. Mark’s unique communication style, agile thinking, and strong analytical skills have positioned him as a well-connected player in the small business and start up scene in Atlantic Canada. Mark’s desire to focus more on pursuing his passions in these areas led him to amalgamate Mark Goldhar Inc with Cambridge Financial Services at the end of 2017.
