The Knight of Sales: Spotlight on Tech Guru Marcus Knight

Marcus Knight may be one the most successful college dropouts you’ve never heard of.  Formerly a sales lead for global, multi-billion-dollar companies like Groupon and Fast Company-recognized tech trailblazers like Textio, in response to nationwide protests against police brutality in 2020, compounded by years of frustration over discrimination in the workplace, Knight – despite his impressive rise through the ranks of corporate America – decided to strike out on his own. “I’ll never forget where I was when I learned George Floyd had been killed,” reflects the 38-year-old husband and…
