“Harris Pezzella, President of Marathon Consulting, said, “Being recognized for a 6th consecutive year by Virginia Business is meaningful to our company for many reasons. For Marathon, it is representative of those character traits that our company has espoused from the very beginning; but even more importantly, the character of each individual who make up the company.” He continued, “While we are honored to be on the Best Places To Work list, we are mostly grateful to the Marathon team for what they do on a daily basis in service to their clients, and the way they go about their efforts is what truly makes Marathon a great place to work.”
