Kansas City Business Journal, “Newsmaker: MarksNelson’s Radetic Builds a Culture and Occasionally Busts a Move”, October 19, 2017
Since Mark Radetic joined accounting firm MarksNelson LLC in 2003, it has grown from 30 employees generating $3 million a year to a 160-person business generating $23 million.
Radetic is managing partner of the Kansas City operation, helping it develop a reputation as a highly skilled, independent accounting firm serving middle-market entrepreneurs. He’s a 34-year industry veteran who helped MarksNelson implement a growth plan that would enable it to avoid getting gobbled up by larger competitors yet buy out a slew of older partners nearing retirement.
And it’s working: The company grew more than 40 percent in 2016, with organic growth accounting for 22 percent and the acquisition of Marsh & Co. in Overland Park the rest.
