Mark Coron has been in the Not for Profit sector for over 20 years in a variety of organizations, with budgets ranging from $ 5 million to $ 100 million. He has demonstrated strategic and financial leadership in community based, chapter based, healthcare, social service organizations and including international operations. These organizations have been multi locations and facilities. They have ranged in staff size from 50 to 2500.
He has held titles of Director of Financial Analysis and Systems, Controller, Consultant and his career has steadily grown in the areas of managing staff development, financial software enhancements and implementations, and accurate and timely reporting both on a monthly and Fiscal Year end basis. He has been the “Super User” for most if not all financial reporting packages, including Sungard OneSolution, Microsoft Great Plains Dynamics, FRx, Quick Books Pro. He has reported to CFO’s, Executive Director’s and reported to Board of Directors at AGBU, FEGS, Legal Aid Society, NYC & Company and The New York State Society of CPA’s.
The key issues that Mark has solved for many of the organizations is the automation of cost allocation tables For the most part, unless proper planning is given, most financial organizational structure is not properly planned and therefore creates additional problems. For example, Mark was working with an organization that had 10,000 Chart of Accounts and he reduced it to 500.
Mark has formulated budgets for Domestic and International organizations. He sets up meetings with Senior Managers and Director to review the current Budget vs Actual variances and then asks for their input to achieve a meaningful and attainable budget.
