“Harris Pezzella, President of Marathon Consulting, said, “To be voted one of the best places to work in the state of Virginia marks another great achievement for Marathon. When we started twelve (12) years ago, we never talked about receiving this type of recognition. We wanted to create a company and an environment where our employees would enjoy working. From this standpoint, we have been successful beyond our wildest dreams; and therefore, I would like to thank our people, who are the real reason why Marathon is such a great place to work.”
