“In these difficult financial times, companies need to look into every dark corner to find profit,” says David Den Boer, founder of Column5. “Profit opportunities very often are hidden in the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement. It takes someone with Mark’s skills and experience to find those opportunities and to develop and implement a profit strategy. Mark will be able to bring real and immediate tangible value to Column5’s customers. ”
