In this Greater Good Radio exclusive, Evan and Kari talks to Marc Tilker about the birth of the Marathon Group of Companies and how it has developed to become a multi-industrial conglomerate. We get to learn about the value of persistence and tenacity from Marc who in his younger days have tried, failed, but never give up to achieve his entrepreneurial objectives.
Hear more from Marc as he reveals the importance of giving back to the community and why business partners should support each other’s passions outside the four corners of the office.

“I felt like it was not an obligation but it was important,” Marc says. “I made sure that my partners understood that it was important and it should be important to the company and they agreed – that the community can benefit and therefore the company should benefit and they were all for it.”
