Originally from a small town of Uzice, Serbia, Marko was raised during the country’s economic downfall. Striving to create a better life for his family, he set off to attend the International Franco-American School of Management in Belgrade/Paris where he received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing in 1998. Marko then moved to Oahu where he attended Hawaii Pacific University, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 2000 and in 2009 a Master of Business Administration in Marketing as well as a Master of Science in Information Systems. Upon graduation Marko joined forces with Nash Subotic and in 2007 created Wealth Strategy Partners, LLC.
Today, Wealth Strategy Partners is one of the fastest growing financial firms in the region with branch offices in Honolulu, California, and Nevada. What began as a small startup of four people has grown to over 150 representatives and expanded its territory to ten offices strategically located on the West Coast. Wealth Strategy Partners is an affiliate of WestPac Wealth Partners, serving clients throughout the nation. Wealth Strategy Partners sets its focus on their clients’ vision for the future, and strives to create a lasting impact on their wealth potential.
