Accruit Expands with New Hires in Business Development and Digital Marketing

Accruit, LLC, the nation's leading provider of qualified intermediary (QI) services and 1031 like-kind exchange (LKE) program solutions, is pleased to announce two new additions to the company: Chad Schleicher, in the role of business development manager, and Mark Flanagan as digital marketing & sales manager.

Schleicher comes to Accruit from Inland Securities Corporation's Chicago headquarters where he was a broker-dealer relationship manager. Prior to this, Schleicher worked with Cole Capital as a property accountant. He holds a Graduate Accounting Certificate and Bachelor of Science in Business and Finance from the University of Phoenix.

At Accruit, Schleicher is responsible for the creation and execution of business development strategies, the facilitation of ongoing relationships with Accruit's clients and the advancement of new client opportunities. Based in Phoenix, AZ, he manages Accruit's sales in the Southwestern United States territory.

Mark Flanagan joins Accruit with an extensive background in online marketing and digital content strategy, most recently as the manager of web analytics for Active Network. As Accruit's Digital Marketing & Sales Manager, Flanagan manages marketing initiatives, collateral, and campaigns across Accruit's digital channels.

"Chad and Mark are tremendous additions to the team," said Accruit's President and CEO Brent Abrahm. "We continue to see growth across our product lines, and adding deeper experience to both business development and marketing will position us well going forward."

"They were carefully selected for their background and experience, and we're excited to add them to our talented staff," added Chief Operating Officer Karen Kemerling. "Their presence at Accruit will help foster growth in the critical areas of sales and digital marketing. We look forward to their contributions in 2015 and beyond."
