Marc S. Rose

Founder - Managing Partner - President

 

Marc S. Rose is the founder and President of Paragon Ventures and has more than 35 years of health care experience. Marc began his career in health care at an early age working in his family-owned pharmacy chain and home health care services business aptly named Medical Home Care Service.

In 1984, he led the sale of the family homecare business to Glasrock Home Health Care. After the sale, Marc held executive positions with Glasrock and played a key role in their vigorous growth and expansion plans including numerous acquisitions. In 1991, he left the corporate world and formed M. S. Rose & Associates offering high- level executive search and business management services to the home health care industry. M. S. Rose & Associates flourished from the start and as a result of overwhelming demand for specific health care merger and acquisition expertise, Marc started Paragon Ventures in 1994 to serve the needs of business owners aimed at maximizing shareholder value and exploring all of the strategic options available to them.

During the past 20 years, Paragon Ventures has successfully represented business owners in the sale of over 175 businesses and consulted with thousands of business owners on the sale of their businesses, the M&A process, valuations and long-term strategic exit planning. Marc is a nationally recognized speaker at industry trade events and frequently writes articles and makes presentations on mergers, acquisitions and strategic exit planning for entrepreneurs. He graduated with honors from Rutgers University in 1979 with degrees in Economics and Psychology.

Marc resides in the Philadelphia suburban area and is a devoted family man. Marc is an avid reader and enjoys golf, cycling, travel and all types of music.
