The Swiss have long prided themselves for their precision and attention to detail.
How we got started
Mark Fankhauser created CFO Select in the tradition of his Swiss ancestors. He combines the time-honored Swiss attention to detail with the American dream of financial success—success for your company.
His goal for you: “Nothing is more gratifying to me than to see my clients grow and succeed. My biggest satisfaction is to see my clients achieve their goals, whether it is making a certain amount of money, growing their business or selling their business.”
“Small businesses seldom have the resources to hire full-time CFOs. With CFO Select, a business owner can continue to do what he loves and what he does best. CFO Select provides the financial and legal umbrella to allow this.”
Mark earned his Bachelor’s Degree in accounting at the University of Utah and began his career as an auditor at Ernst and Young, one of the world’s largest accounting and business consulting firms. While working for E&Y he attended the University of Utah and earned his Masters of Business Administration. After four years with E&Y, he worked at Ascensus/BISYS Insurance Services, the nation’s largest insurance brokerage. During his five years with the company, he became a licensed life, health & disability insurance agent. His roles with the company were Controller and then as Director of Finance. He also spent two years on the Mergers and Acquisition team. He decided to leave BISYS and start his own practice and joined his father at Fankhauser and Associates, specializing in tax preparation and consulting for small businesses and individuals. At Fankhauser and Associates he learned the value of establishing trust through personal relationships.
Mark thrives on challenges: He followed the Tour de France for ten days on his bicycle. If you ask him about his road biking trip from the beach to the top of Haleakala ̄ in Hawaii, or his climb of the Grand Teton, you’ll understand why Mark undertakes difficult tasks with optimism and ultimate success. Mark is a believer in the restorative value of recreation and nature. He enjoys road and mountain biking as well as traveling with his family. He likes to make time for what matters.
