About Mark Trozzi

Mr. Trozzi currently provides interim Chief Operating Officer/Chief Financial Officer services and project management support and analysis to for-profit and nonprofit clients through his own consulting company. He also serves on the finance committees of several for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Mr. Trozzi began his career in management consulting where he specialized in government, educational and medical clients and the retail industry. He later assumed senior financial positions in the retail industry for The May Company – Cleveland, The Sherwin-Williams – Stores Division, C&J Clark Retail, Inc. (the holding company for the Bostonian, Hanover and Clark Shoe chains), The Watch Hill Group, and Brooks Fashion Stores. He was then recruited by the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) to be its Chief Financial Officer since she saw her 900 health care facilities as a retail chain operation and wanted someone who shared her vision. Mr. Trozzi left PPFA several years later to become the Chief Financial Officer of an Internet company, Spree.com, which expired when the Internet bubble burst. While he was looking for another interesting senior financial position, industry friends asked him to do some projects which turned into a thriving consulting business where he served as the Interim COO or CFO for clients like Amnesty International of the USA, The After-School Corporation (TASC), the national office of the YWCA and EngenderHealth, Inc. an international reproductive rights and family planning services nonprofit which was founded over 65 years ago and has operated in more than 40 countries around the world. After seven months as the Interim CFO of EngenderHealth, Mr. Trozzi joined the staff as a regular employee and 14 months later was promoted to the position of Vice President of Operations & Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Trozzi has a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and a Science Masters in Management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He and his wife Cheryl live in Chadds Ford, PA and participate in local civic and historic activities and 18th century re-enactments. Mr. Trozzi also holds a commercial pilot’s license. Trozzi performs a variety of tasks for Chadds Ford Live which include writing the occasional article and helping with pre-publication tasks.
