Q&A with Andrew Wessels of The Marque

Founder & CEO

Principal Series:

  • The Marque is the leader in digital profile solutions for successful individuals. A Marque Profile is a crucial digital asset that serves as the foundation of an individual’s digital communications strategy, allowing them to present themselves online as they would in their everyday lives.

The Marque is a digital profile solutions and digital asset management company. With first impressions increasingly being formed online, Andrew Wessels, Founder & CEO of The Marque, realized the significance of a controllable digital asset on page one of Google. He noticed that many high-profile professionals were poorly represented online with out-of-date information shared and re-shared, and no clear source of trustworthy content. Prior to joining The Marque, Jody held senior sales roles at TIME and The New York Times. Chris started his professional career at Bank of America, before moving on to a career in education at the university level.
