Prior to founding HDC, Marc was a risk management and finance executive at Citizens Financial Group - a super-regional bank. He also successfully founded and ran two small entrepreneurial businesses, including a private practice financial services consulting business.
Marc is a proven innovator in the banking industry.
While he was a Treasury portfolio manager at Citizens Bank, early in his career, Marc developed a ground-breaking trading system that generated millions of dollars in added profits. Also at Citizens, Marc sensed that they had been significantly over-billed by one of their largest financial partners; on his own initiative, he identified the problem and recovered $27M that had been owed to the bank for several years.
While consulting for a client in the manufactured housing industry, Marc contacted Warren Buffet to suggest that one of his portfolio companies, one of the largest home credit companies in the US, make an innovative change to their credit policy. Marc worked with the company's CEO to implement the change, and the result was a doubling of sales for his client, dramatically reduced loss severity for the credit company, and because of their lower credit risk - approximately a 1/3 lower interest rate for buyers of manufactured homes.
Marc has an MBA from the University of New Hampshire and a BS Biology degree from Tufts University. He also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
