Mark Clift


When you think about accountants, creativity is not the first word that usually comes to mind. But, like all of the MJ partners, Mark is no ordinary accountant. He is a free thinker and that means a lot to his clients. Because Mark takes a creative approach to problem solving, you can expect true, individual attention and solutions that fit your situation. It’s important to Mark that you get the right answer, not just a cookie-cutter response. Delving into matters and uncovering those components that make your needs unique is just everyday business at MJ.
