Foresight Hires Mark McGaffin as Director of Accounting Services

Foresight Introduces Mark McGaffin CPA

PHOENIX – Daniel Isard, president of The Foresight Companies has announced the hiring of Mark McGaffin, CPA, as its new director of accounting services.

“In assuming this position, Mark brings over 30 years of experience in accounting and tax planning to closely held businesses,” Isard said. “His work will promote and lead our growing accounting service business unit to a continued high level of success benefitting our extensive client base and staff.”

McGaffin, a New York native, moved to Phoenix in the early 1980s and has worked with the leading regional accounting firms as a partner. “I am very excited to be working in Foresight’s multi-faceted service environment where I can deliver professional and top quality financial and management results to the accounting clients we serve. I look forward to bringing a leading edge to the needs of our clients and direction to our staff,” he said.

McGaffin takes over the role formerly held by Mandy Rohde, CPA. Rohde will continue as the financial controller of Foresight. “The needs of Foresight have gotten much more complicated as the company continues to grow. With a growing staff come more complex payroll, billing and accounting needs. I will primarily focus full time on our needs while Mark supervises our accounting staff and client’s needs.”

Rohde will provide back-up support for the accounting team and help assimilate the accounting service tasks with the data needs of the company's business analysts.

Since the mid-1980s, Foresight has worked throughout North America to bring cutting edge financial and management services. For the past decade, it has provided privately-owned funeral homes with bookkeeping, tax planning and tax filing. Foresight’s accounting services are “real time,” meaning work is done throughout the month for each client. This results in the client having a clear snapshot of their month end and year-to-date financial picture so as soon as the monthly bank reconciliation is complete. In addition, the clients utilizing their management consulting receive a quarterly 90-point analysis of the health of their business and any needed corrective actions.
