Marky Ma

Finance Manager

Marky Ma

Finance Manager

Bio

October 2015: It is a month that will be remembered forever as a milestone in TaskUs' history, for in that 10th month of 2015, Marky Ma joined the team as its new Financial Analyst. It is rumored that film composer John Williams offered to score his entrance for the moment that he stepped through TaskUs' door for the very first time. We may never know where fact separates itself from fiction. In January 2017, Marky was promoted to Sr. Financial Analyst and then to Finance Manager in 2018.

What we do know for certain is that Marky leads TaskUs' global pricing requests while working with our Sales, Operations, and Client Services teams. He also plays a critical role on our Global FP & A team.

One might ask, "From where did the myth, the man, the Marky come?" Alas, only his bosses at his former internships know for sure. We salute those brave bosses who mentored, trained, and guided him to become the financial superstar-in-the-making that we are proud to have on the TaskUs team today!

Marky graduated from Pepperdine University - a university he considers one of the most beautiful in the United States - with a Master of Science degree in Applied Finance.

In addition to wowing our socks off each and every day, Marky enjoys delicious cuisine, drawing on the weekends, and playing the multiplayer online battle arena video game "Dota 2". He regrets that his solo MMR (matchmaking rating skill level) in the game is "only 4000."
