These 20-Under-40 Up-and-Coming Printing Industry Executives Share Their Success Stories
"I believe he saw a potential that even I didn't realize and, at times, it was very difficult. But one thing is for sure. I wouldn't be half as effective had he not risked our personal relationship to mold me as a leader for the good of the company, our employees and their families," Marcian notes. "My father's not a man of many words, but when he talks, people listen. I often remember one question he asked me early in my career when I told him something couldn't be done, which was, 'Are you telling me you are unwilling or unable?' I didn't answer. I just turned around with an understanding—the only answer was that I was definitely willing."
One of Marcian's objectives is to change the way clients view Corporate Press, and he is motivated to build a team that has "a very diverse set of core competencies." The key, he says, is a strong desire to build loyalty from ideas that bolster customers in every aspect of their business.
An avid cyclist, Marcian enters as many cycling events as possible to achieve a desired level of fitness heading into his 40s. He also enjoys golf and following the Maryland Terrapins and Washington Redskins. Marcian and his wife of 17 years, Angie, have two children, Collin, 12, and Erin, 9. Another beloved family member is April, their 6-year-old golden retriever.
