Mark is a high-performance executive with 25 years of healthcare management and finance experience. Additionally, he has an in-depth knowledge of long term healthcare operations at all levels and has continually demonstrated proficiency in staffing, budgeting, and program management.
Mark was brought up on a hard rock farm working at a sawmill in Oneonta, Alabama. After high school, Mark attended and graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in Business Administration. With a focus on accounting, he earned his CPA Certificate in the early ’90s.
After gaining some experience in the field Mark started his own accounting firm. Seeing an opportunity to serve an aging population he ventured into the Skilled Nursing Home business in North Alabama. Now with five facilities and nineteen years later Mark is expanding his activities and following a passion for history, film, and his love of the great state of Alabama, and the City of Birmingham. He has established Sims Productions, LLC to focus on bringing past historical events and significant contributions of various individuals to the screen in the form of professionally executed documentary films and streaming video to new and existing audiences.
After discovering the novel “Rising Road”, by Sharon Davies, Mark secured an option to the film rights. The story is about a clash of cultures in Birmingham in 1921 that culminated in a tragic end that divided a community. Mark’s vision is to put the story on film to not only entertain an audience but to challenge people to examine themselves regarding how they view hate and bigotry.
Mark has never lacked in confidence and looks forward to the exciting challenges that the film world brings.
