Before forming Saunders Retirement Advisors in 1985, Mark worked as a registered representative for Wheat First Securities and Dean Witter Reynolds in Richmond. Mark ran Saunders Retirement Advisors as a broker-dealer until 2012.  Now he uses Investacorp in Miami to provide broker-dealer services for his company. His reason: he'd rather spend time with clients than with regulators.

Mark grew up on a farm in Halifax County, VA, but has lived in Richmond since 1975. He has served the community for many years through Rotary, ICFP (The Institute of Certified Financial Planners), IAFP (The International Association of Financial Planners) and FPA (The Financial Planning Association). ln his spare time, he enjoys boating on Swift Creek Reservoir with his wife, Linda, watching college football and playing '60s music on his collection of vintage guitars.
