Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson knows what causes businesses to tick and suddenly stop ticking. He specializes in helping family-owned businesses and closely held partnerships protect the lifelong commitment they’ve made in their business – often their largest single asset.

“Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed people making financial mistakes they often regret for years. I have dedicated myself to helping clients avoid those perilous missteps. Because, as far as I can tell, if you are still reading this, you’re not only personally successful, but you’re also astute enough to see the benefits of preparing for your financial future. I’m enthusiastic about the possibilities of earning your trust to help secure the future that you, your family and your employees have worked so hard to earn.”  ~ Mark

What’s in it for you?

“We find that little things impact big things. Perhaps you’re expanding rapidly, or bringing on a partner, or designing an exit strategy. Maybe you have a pressing concern that is keeping you up at night. I assure you it is just as important to me as it is to you. My job is to help make wise decisions about your financial strategies so you can focus all your energy on operating your business with confidence, knowing that we have your back.”

Mark brought broad industry knowledge from his leadership roles at Abbott Laboratories, Ford, Toyota and Ashland Oil before joining the firm. He is backed by WestPoint Financial Group’s powerful, award-winning team of financial professionals. At WestPoint we offer:  Knowledge, Trust, Security, Reliability, Authenticity and Compassion.

Mark was raised on a family farm in Iowa, so he understands it’s not just business, it’s personal. Hard work and rewards go hand in hand. His family has owned a successful commercial floor company for many years as well, reminding that relationships with customers cannot be overstated. He and his wife, Kim, have been married for 19 years and have two teenaged children. Mark’s parents were Chicago natives, so the Magnificent Mile is a favorite destination. Mark enjoys coaching their son’s travel baseball team and supporting their daughter’s national dance squad (which means that Dad does the driving). He is a mentor to MBA students at the University of Kentucky’s Gatton School of Business, and he does fundraising for Special Olympics of Kentucky and God’s Pantry Food Bank in Lexington.
