About the  Author


J.L. Marc Lefebvre, CFP is the founder, president, and CEO of Lefebvre International, a multinational financial services company that provides merchant services to small and large businesses around the globe, making it easy for them to buy or sell goods and services using virtually any form of payment.
From humble beginnings, Marc delivered newspapers, did yard work, and eventually landed a job at a pizza parlor as a dishwasher. While going to high school and grinding out 25 hours a week in a hot kitchen washing pots and pans, he developed a strong work ethic and embarked on a focused path to financial success.
Marc went on to college, graduated with a degree in business, and obtained his Certified Financial Planning (CFP) designation. By the age of 28, he was the division manager in a large financial brokerage firm in Eastern Ontario, Canada where he worked hard and “climbed the ladder” for 13 years.
Sensing new opportunities in the world of e-commerce, Marc made the bold move to start his own company head-quartered in Naples, Florida. Founded in 1999, Lefebvre International has been processing business transactions for over two decades. During that time, Marc developed a knack for anticipating business requirements and spotting new market trends worldwide.
Marc believes that communication and a genuine desire to help people is the essence of financial accomplishment. The world of international finances can be a cold and calculated battlefield, he says, or it can be an exciting and enjoyable vocation rooted in the values of integrity, fairness, and cooperation.
After more than 35 years of honing his transactional skills and expertise, Marc has held true to the principles that have led to his success. He is now at a stage in his life where he wants to pass along lessons learned and strategies that helped him reach his goals so others can benefit and grow.

A Dishwasher’s Dream accurately reflects Marc’s approach to business and life in general. I’ve been fortunate to get to know Marc and we’ve become good friends over the last seven years.
