Mark Bonnett is a partner and senior vice president with Minneapolis–based North Star Resource Group. He has been affiliated with the firm since 1998. In his role with the executive leadership team, he provides strategic direction for the firm, as well as oversees branch offices in the Southwestern United States.
Mark also maintains a personal clientele, where he provides fee-based advice as well as asset and risk management strategies to his successful clients. Mark’s expertise is focused on self-employed professionals, typically medical, dental and veterinary entrepreneurs. He does, however, accept engagements with corporate executives and highly successful families who are in need of “Personal CFO” service and experience.
As of April 1, 2017, Mark is the second-youngest president of GAMA International, the premier association responsible for leadership and professional development within the financial services profession globally. Mark’s commitment to building the financial services industry and financial education is unwavering, as is his passion for preserving face-to-face relationships within the profession as a whole. In addition to his role providing strategy and direction to the leaders within the profession, he also serves as adjunct faculty at Midwestern University in Phoenix, where he is responsible for the development, content and delivery of financial education to graduate medical programs.
You may run into Mark in his adopted hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona—or in San Diego or Denver, the locations of his other offices. Mark also spends a considerable amount of time on the road speaking within the financial services and medical professions, where he regularly delivers keynote and breakout presentations for groups ranging in size from 13 to 3,000.
When not giving back to the profession he loves and educating others about personal finance and leadership, Mark volunteers for Make A Wish Arizona and offers insight to the Phoenix Economic Council. He can also be found enjoying time with his amazing family, sitting on his boat at Lake Powell, Arizona, with his wife Shawna and their two daughters Macy and Presley, or standing in the middle of a trout steam in Colorado with a fly rod in-hand. If a TV is present, it is tuned to Denver Bronco football or University of Arizona basketball (where he received his undergraduate degree.)
Mark is a registered representative and investment advisor representative of CRI Securities, LLC and Securian Financial Services, Inc. 1737353/DOFU 3-2017
