Mark DiGiovanni is the founder of Marathon Financial Strategies, so named because DiGiovanni became a runner in 1969, and says the “Marathon” name was a natural choice, because it serves as a reminder that achieving worthwhile goals requires the same persistence and discipline as running a marathon.
In addition to starting his business during the 1990s, DiGiovanni earned the Certified Financial Planner certification and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation. In 2002, he served as president of the Georgia chapter of the Financial Planning Association (FPA). He was also recognized as a “Five Star: Best in Client Satisfaction Wealth Manager” by Atlanta Magazine in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
In 2010, US-based CFP Board selected DiGiovanni, one of seven ambassadors, for CFP certification in the U.S. As an ambassador, DiGiovanni communicates to consumers the importance of personal financial planning and the value of working with a Certified Financial Planner professional. He uses social media, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to share ideas with colleagues and the public.
