Mark Angott started out in business in 1976, as a young graduate of Michigan State University (BA in Accounting), working as a controller for a small company. In 1981, he joined ASG as an account manager, and nine years later, he took over the company. Soon afterward, he added a Financial Services practice, which now serves as the foundation for ASG service offerings.
Throughout his career with ASG, Mark has recruited in the financial services sector. He possesses a wealth of knowledge about the industry and its people, and has led the office in billings for many years. Mark believes very much in the principles of honesty, integrity and professionalism, and takes pride in leading by example, working with a highly competent team to recruit top level talent to ASG’s client companies. His core philosophy is that the customer is king, and that the service does not end with recruiting. Once outstanding talent is in place, Mark continues to act as an advisor on matters of staffing and talent management. He works closely with clients, representing them in the marketplace in order to help them grow their business.

He currently serves on the Lutheran Heritage Foundation Board of Directors, and is Board Vice Chairman of Trinity Lutheran Church in Utica, MI. For the past 35 years, he has also served as basketball coach for both the girls’ and boys’ teams at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Mark has been married for 38 years to Donna, and is the proud father of daughters Stephanie and Shannon. When not working or coaching, Mark enjoys a good game of golf and his bucket list includes traveling and playing some the world’s top courses. Mark also appreciates reading inspirational books, like former UCLA head basketball coach John Wooden’s books on life, leadership, and what it takes to succeed.
Favorite quote: “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
