SPS Spotlight: Mark Umemoto and AthletesTouch


AthletesTouch - Sobul, Primes & Schenkel CPA - Los AngelesSobul, Primes & Schenkel is excited and proud its newest principal, Mark Umemoto, exemplifies the spirit of community service that we cherish at SPS.

Mark is an active member in the networking organization, AthletesTouch (www.athletestouch.co). AthletesTouch is a collective of over 300 former college and professional athletes who work together to grow and succeed in the business world. Mark played baseball at UC Santa Barbara for four years and coached another. Those of us who’re lucky to work with him know he brings the same drive and passion to his professional life as he did to the diamond.

AthletesTouch is also a philanthropic organization that loves to give back, holding over 100 meetings and events a year. This year, the Fifth Annual AthletesTouch Golf Classic, held at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, raised more than $45,000 for charity.

This year’s charity was The Painted Turtle, founded by Paul Newman in 2004 (www.thepaintedturtle.org). The Painted Turtle is a camp-based program where kids with serious medical conditions can meet others like them and celebrate just being kids.

SPS encourages its staff to not just broaden their horizons professionally, but to enliven their communities as well. “Every individual in our firm is involved in at least one charitable or service organization. It’s just what we do” says Managing Shareholder Rick Schenkel.

We’re proud of Mark as he sets another great example of SPS’s passion for helping others.
