Joining Brian Marks as owners of Knopman Marks Financial Training are long-time colleagues Liza Streiff, Dave Meshkov, and Ian Franklin.

NEW YORK, October 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Knopman Marks Financial Training, one of the foremost FINRA exam preparation companies, announced today that Liza Streiff, Dave Meshkov, and Ian Franklin have joined Brian Marks as owners of the firm. As Knopman Marks celebrates its 30th anniversary, the company is deepening its commitment to continuously reimagine how to deliver the best training possible to meet the evolving needs of students and clients.

"I’m pleased to welcome Liza, Dave, and Ian as owners of Knopman Marks," says Brian Marks, president of Knopman Marks, noting that the team has worked together for more than a decade. "From the beginning, they treated Knopman Marks not only as a job but as a place they wanted to nurture and grow. They treated Knopman Marks as their own."

Liza Streiff, CEO, joined Knopman Marks as her first job right out of college. She has overhauled operations, guided the digital transformation of the training platform, and as CEO, ensures that the firm continually raises the bar in all areas. "Liza has a powerful vision for the future of our business and is relentless in that pursuit," Marks says.

Dave Meshkov, managing director and head of course design, has led the creation and updating of all courses and slides. "Dave has elevated the content and delivery of our training beyond what anyone would imagine for a qualification exam," Marks says. He has encouraged the firm’s instructors to bring their enthusiasm to class, created dynamic courseware, and helped shape the future of learning.

Ian Franklin, managing director, head of product development, and head of faculty, has created materials that enable Knopman Marks students to study strategically and with confidence, driving pass rates to all-time highs, even during a pandemic. He has also mentored the next generation of instructors. "Ian sets an example of what it means to be a true professional and can be counted on without exception," Marks says.

"I’m excited about what Knopman Marks Financial Training has delivered in the last 30 years and even more excited about what we can deliver in the next 30," says Marks.

The new owners are grateful to their former colleague, Harvey Knopman, who founded the company in 1991 and retired two years ago. He trained tens of thousands of students and saw each one as an individual with unique strengths and challenges.

"We remain dedicated to meeting each and every student where they are and helping them succeed," Marks says. "We’re also grateful for the opportunity to train the candidates who choose to work with us every year and look forward to continuing to help them thrive."
