Phoenix – August 30, 2017 — Today, Daniel Isard, president of The Foresight Companies, the premier financial, accounting and management company serving funeral homes and cemeteries throughout North America, announced the hiring of Mark McGaffin, CPA as their 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,” stated Dan Isard. “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”, Isard added.

McGaffin, a New York native, moved to Phoenix in the early 1980’s and has worked with the leading regional accounting firms as a partner. Mark states, “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.”

Mark McGaffin takes over the role formerly held by Mandy Rohde, CPA. Mandy will continue as the Financial Controller of Foresight. Mandy states, “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”. Mandy will provide back-up support for the accounting team and help assimilate the Accounting Service tasks with the data needs of our Business Analysts.

Since the mid 1980’s Foresight has worked throughout North America to bring cutting edge financial and management services. For the past decade, they have provided privately owned funeral homes with book keeping, tax planning and tax filing. Foresight’s accounting services are “real time”. This means 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.
