CPA/ABV Managing Partner
In 1982, four years after graduating from The Ohio State University, Dana finally came to his senses and moved to Fort Myers from the great white and cold North.
During his time as a partner at a large local CPA firm, he and his wife acquired a fine wine and gourmet food store. The experience he gained in the retail wine business influenced him to do two things, start his own CPA Firm and get the hell out of the retail wine business.
So, in 2002, he traded a decent bottle of Merlot for a used desk and opened Dana Vidussi, CPA, P.A. Then he sold the wine shop. He is a long standing member and former president of Cypress Lake Country Club. Today, he still enjoys a great glass of wine and a good round of golf, sometimes at the same time with clients and friends. More importantly, he uses his real world business experience to assist his clients with their real world problems.
After serving 4 years in the US Army, Mark began his career in accounting in 1990 working for a mid-western regional public accounting firm.
Then he transitioned into a position at the international public accounting firm Arthur Andersen. Mark gained invaluable experience working with multi-million dollar corporations and successful executives.
Working extensively as a Controller/CFO with clients ranging from construction to high-tech, Mark Makara has established himself as an asset to the companies and individuals that engage his services. Mark and his team work with over 600 individual and corporate tax clients with a goal of providing personalized customer service. He works closely throughout the year with many of those small business owners improving cash flow, reducing taxes and ultimately preparing the small business owner for his/her exit strategy.

Mindy is a Florida native, compliments of the US Navy. She has lived in Coral Springs, Lakeland and Fort Myers, which has melded her into a Southern Yankee.
Mindy enjoys art/music, tennis and travel, and has started to dabble in jewelry design; she is also involved with many charitable organizations. She is pretty much a sucker for any fundraiser that helps kids, animals or the environment.
Mindy is also a CFP, CAM and licensed Realtor. She will generally give most anything a try at least once and is proud of the not your normal CPA label given to her years ago. Her feeling is that being more open minded and rounded is more beneficial to both her and her clients.
