Prior to Ametros, Marques worked on Wall Street as an investor, adviser and strategist within the insurance and business services sector. He has been instrumental in the sale and acquisition of multiple privately held organizations within the claims solutions management and managed care industries.
Marques’ story is truly inspiring. Coming from a rough neighborhood, Marques distinguished himself through academics and his positive attitude. He earned an opportunity to attend Clevelands “University School”, a prestigious academy for talented students. These formidable years at University School taught Marques a critical skillset, the most important being the ability to seize the opportunities presented to him. He is a millennial highlight reel of entrepreneurial endeavors, relentless drive, and high expectations. What struck me upon meeting him was how friendly and light hearted Maques was. With such a serious resume and position, one cant help but expect a personality to match. While Marques exhibited this, he did so with an approachable and relatable air about him. Marques and I spend as much time talking about embarrassing childhood stories and terrible styles as we do high-level corporate strategies and investment. He loves to laugh, and applies his infectious positivity to his leadership style. Marques is the man, and Im honored to have him on the show.
