“Working in the manufacturing sector for over two decades, I recognized early on the “Catch 22” scenario manufacturers were facing trying to invest in sales initiatives while ALSO needing to reduce product cost in order to stay competitive in an expanding global market . MARN offers a cost-effective solution for boosting sales and profits on both ends of the supply and demand spectrum.”
President and CEO
MARN was founded by Marnee Palladino, a manufacturing visionary and entrepreneur with over twenty years sales, project management, and manufacturing expertise. Marnee’s vision for simplifying the process of connecting a specified need with the best specialized supplier originated while working in New York as President of ML Project Management Consulting, Inc. With a goal of applying her business building skills within the manufacturing sector, Marnee began working at Palladin Precision Products—now one of MARN’s principal manufacturing lines.
Serving as MARN’s president, CEO, and principal owner, Marnee is devoted to immersing herself in the business of every MARN affiliate. While she plays an important management role at MARN, most of Marnee’s professional time is spent traveling throughout New England in order to accurately understand the service fits and needs of her partners and clients.
Marnee’s time-earned expertise, together with her commitment to success for all affiliates—is the fuel that powers MARN’s strategic business-building approach.
A graduate of Cornell University and avid golfer, Marnee resides in central Connecticut with her husband and two daughters.
“Working at MARN has opened my eyes to what a difference there really is in U.S. manufacturing quality. It’s a great feeling knowing I am part of such a worthwhile and beneficial business service!”
