Marcus was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida. After high school, Marcus went on to complete his studies at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. In the mid-1980s, Marcus entered the Marine Industry with FiberKing, builders of Bomber Bass Boats and Commander Runabouts & Fish-n-Skis. His involvement in Design, Product Development, Engineering, Manufacturing, Sourcing, Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, and Dealer Network Management provided a foundation upon which Marcus entered the Manufacturers’ Representative business in 1990.
For the following 20 years, Marcus forged customer and principal relationships that resulted in exponential growth, garnering more than 40 principal and customer awards. During this time, acting as a Director, Marcus was also responsible for Principal development and conflict management for over 80 entities.
In the fall of 2010, Marcus founded Summit Marine Sales, LLC to provide principals and customers with a concentrated, technically proficient focus that can only be derived with a premier and limited number of non-competing lines. Today, Summit is enjoying steady growth while continuing to plot a course that benefits its Principals and Customers per the challenging and changing marketplace.
