I have been providing financial advice to families and businesses throughout eastern Pennsylvania for many years. An avid reader with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, I pride myself on staying abreast of the latest economic and financial developments affecting the global economy and, ultimately, client portfolios.
Prior to founding Mark Cernese & Associates, I was the Portfolio Manager and Chief Operating Officer at ATA Financial Group, a public accounting and investment firm. Before that I owned and operated a residential and commercial mortgage company.
I earned a Master of Science degree in International Banking & Finance from the University of Salford and a graduate certification in Corporate Financial Analysis from the University of Melbourne. I also hold the Series 7 and Series 66 investment licenses.
While running my financial practice, I served as the Chief Executive Officer of TWG Security, a three-time Inc. 5000 recipient and leading provider of security technology solutions located in Emmaus, Pennsylvania.
Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to receive numerous awards, including:
I live in Macungie, PA with my three beautiful children - Mark, Mia, and Marlo. In my spare time I enjoy reading, exercising, and playing guitar.
