Mark Duarte founded Duarte, Inc. in 1988 after buying a tiny Mac for writing his college papers. As an artist, one of the first apps that interested Mark was an illustration program. Mark specialized as a technical illustrator, and when we won Duarte the Apple account, we got niched into presentations. As the organization scaled, he began to run finance, IT, and built the custom database that ran the company for years.
In 2016, Mark semi-retired to pursue his fine art once again. He now focuses solely on the finances of Duarte, as well as his grandson.
