Mark H. Roberts was involved in a federal trade program since 1990 when he joined the operation in Mobile. He has been involved in the preparation of applications to participate in the program for both the chemical and shipbuilding industries.

Mr. Roberts has conducted economic, systems and procedures analyses and worked with logistics and production personnel in enhancing international trade operations.

Mr. Roberts' broad experience in the federal trade program spans from the application process, through the activation process, to monitoring and compliance review and annual reporting functions.

Mr. Roberts developed a new automated inventory control system for a chemical plant that simplified the operations for the user, Customs broker, and U.S. Customs. Noteworthy in this endeavor is the fact that the chemical plant was able to avoid the quagmire which has engulfed the oil refinery for years.

As Controller for three corporations, Mr. Roberts was responsible for the General Ledger, General Journal, Balance Sheet, and Income Statements for all three companies. Mr. Roberts filed all corporate federal, state, and payroll tax forms for two of the corporations.
