About Gene Marbach At Large

Follow me here: @GeneMarbach
What I blog about: Comunications, public relations, investor relations, marketing, business, life in general, the secrets of the universe, etc.
Some years ago at a party, a fortuneteller told me that I was destined to be a commentator… Ergo, the creation of “Gene Marbach At Large.” In the space kindly allocated to me by the fine folks at CommPro, I will attempt to analyze, editorialize, chastise, catalyze, hypnotize, surprise, surmise, and apprise. My focus will be communications and business-related topics with insights informed by my more than 30 years experience in investor relations and corporate communications, most recently as Group Vice President at Makovsky + Company. I would like to encourage readers to think a little differently. The topics I choose are things of interest to communications professionals and I try to deal with them the way most people would, sometimes seriously, sometimes with a sense of humor.
