MARK GREER. CEO

06 281 2745 B.Com (hons), CA

The brain behind Bizdom is Mark Greer, one of New Zealand’s most awarded Chartered Accountants. He has six industry accolades to his name, won on the strength of his entrepreneurial thinking and ability to get the best out of businesses and the people who own them.

Mark’s career was founded on an honours degree in accounting and commercial banking. His CV includes a proven track record of building and rolling out businesses nationwide through strategic thinking and focused execution.

From a rural Hawke’s Bay family background, Mark is certainly not your typical Chartered Accountant. Not only is he a self-made man, he’s a thought leader who has helped many other business owners to achieve their financial and life goals.

Victoria or Vik as we call her, is Mark’s Virtual right hand lady, she helps keep Mark to task. She is also Head of Marketing and Administration here at Bizdom.

With over 10 years experience with businesses in the CA industry, Vik knows how to manage Mark and fill the gaps in his professional life. Vik and Mark work closely as a team to ensure the best possible results for clients. The work of a great Executive Assistant is self-appointed and requires a high degree of professional independence, initiative and self-discipline and our Vik has it all along with a sprinkle of admin OCD. She is an organisation queen.

As Vik is virtual, away from Bizdom she spends her time darting between her two home towns, Mount Maunganui and the Coromandel and is often here there and everywhere taking care of her Virtual Assistant Business.
