Mann started his business career at his father’s auto dealership. The dealership, Future Motors, was the largest volume dealership in the United States during the 1970’s. During that time, virtually every taxi cab sold in NYC was sold by the family dealership.
After leaving the family business and the auto business Mann founded RECOM, a leasing company focusing on the transportation industry. There, Mann developed successful retail and wholesale programs for Bombardier Capital. Additionally, RECOM became one of the largest originators of transportation leases in the Northeast.

After RECOM, Mann created marketing programs for American Express, which was parlayed into The American Express entry into the Office Products division. In 2003 Mann created RC Leasing & Consulting LLC, a company servicing the medical community.
