A founding partner of PeopleFirm, Marcus has 20 years of experience as a business thought leader. Both as a consultant and as an internal employee, he has helped a variety of corporations with their business and people strategies, external and internal marketing programs, and new product and service development. Marcus has maintained a passion and respect for the human element of organizations throughout his career. He is equally adept at both highly strategic projects that define how companies compete in the labor market and the day-to-day details of executing an employee survey program. His focus (some might call it an obsession) on structure and patterns enables him to convey complex information in easily understandable terms that can be translated into clear insight for executives, managers, and front-line employees alike. His current areas of focus include people strategy and driving high performance through employee engagement.
