GETTING TO KNOW MARK REINHARD OF CONCEPTS2CODE
- My kids loved the movie, “Robots.” While the movie is about chasing your dreams, no matter how big or far away they might be, there is a line from that movie that I will always remember — “See a need, fill a need.” In the accounts receivable management industry, a prime example of that strategy is Mark Reinhard from Concepts2Code. He saw that collection agencies needed help getting on board the technology train, and he has built a successful business to help them accomplish that goal. It’s that kind of inventiveness, creativity, and desire to help that makes this such a great industry to work in. Read on to learn more about Mark, why he wants to visit your office if there is a mountain nearby, and why you may not want to bother him on weekend afternoons.
