Mark Naude: Co-Founder and Director of Operations

Mark is a Chartered Accountant by training. Mark left Durban in 2003 after completing his articles with Grant Thornton, and moved to the USA to live and work in Southern California. Mark worked with another South African expat, managing and eventually co-owning a fashion accessories company. In 2010 Mark and his partner sold the company to a Private Equity group, and after a few more years of consulting, Mark left the business in 2014.

While Mark may be no Pilates expert, he knows his way around the operations of a business. You might not see him often, but he will always be in the background making sure everything is running smoothly!

On the odd occasion he's not doing the books for Flex Pilates or working on another of his businesses, you'll find Mark going for a surf, or heading for a round of golf with his brother.

Mark has had a longstanding interest in health and nutrition, and he is also certified as a Nutritionist Consultant (CNC) by the NHI in Southern California.
