Mark M. Deutsch, MBA
Mark M. Deutsch, MBA has been in your shoes. During his 25-year-plus entrepreneurial career, Mark has started or operated more than a dozen companies ranging from a landscaping business (while in middle school) to a medical billing software company (during the dot-com boom). He has been involved at a C-level with businesses that had 0 to 100 employees; start-up to mature stages; with companies that succeeded and others that imploded. After learning some valuable lessons in the school of hard knocks, Mark has determined that your most valuable business asset is your personal and professional network. Called the “Mayor of Richmond, Virginia,” and the “guy who knows everyone,” Mark moved to Richmond, VA from Orlando, FL in 1993, knowing no one except the manager of the company he was coming to work for. Today he has a personal and professional network without equal, and Mark is a Master Networker, Author, Speaker, Trainer, Seminar Leader, Online Information Marketer, and life-long Entrepreneur. Currently, Mark is the Executive Director & CEO of BNI (Business Network International) – Central Virginia, the largest and most successful business referral organization in Virginia. He is widely recognized as THE EXPERT for building your business by referrals. The son of German immigrants who survived forced labor camps after WW II, Mark cut his teeth in an environment of hard work, survival, overcoming obstacles, and bootstrapping. He built his first multi-million dollar company before he was 30 years old, lost it all, and has bounced back. Mark authors hundreds of articles and he speaks more than 200 times every year to trade associations, business organizations, and professional groups on the topics of networking, sales, marketing, search engine marketing, and social media marketing. Mark is an active member of several boards, and he also owns equity positions in a number of small and mid-sized private businesses across a variety of industries.
