Marcus Burrell
Senior Partner
Saga MKTG

With a specialty in business strategy and development, Marcus Burrell oversees the growth and operations of the organization.

He knows all about the business experience. He began his first one at the age of only six—a successful investment company that used revenue from candy sales to buy shares of companies such as McDonald’s, Best Buy, Toys ‘R’ Us and Microsoft,  just to name a few.

As a grown up, Burrell’s business experience has spanned music, real estate, banking and financial advising.  He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Michigan.


The Power of Storytelling

Storytelling is the primary means of human communication. It’s how we share ideas. They allow us to overcome great differences and to rally together. Our collective experience is a story we share. Stories affect our culture and as a result, the things that we make and communicate. Eric Thomas and Marcus Burrell, senior partners at Saga MKTG, will explore how brands, products and companies tell stories inspired by culture—and how those stories create new cultural norms.
