Edmund J Marano
Mr. Edmund Marano originally resided in Brooklyn, New York, but spent the majority of his professional career in central New Jersey. His college education was at Long Island University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. He furthered his education by also earning a Master of Science degree from the same university. Following his education, Mr. Marano was employed for four years as a teacher for the New York Board of Education.
Although he enjoyed his time as a teacher, Mr. Marano shifted his focus to the retail automotive industry where he managed, developed and delivered training seminars for retail dealerships, internal corporate employees of automotive importers Mercedes-Benz of North America and BMW of North America. During his time with Mercedes and BMW, from 1979 to 2004, Mr. Marano worked at both the regional and national levels in human resources, retail operations, service, and business development. He developed numerous training programs, presented and facilitated leadership and skills training programs to both dealership and corporate team members throughout the country.
Mr. Marano retired from BMW of North America in 2004 and returned to his roots as a teacher, when he took a position as an Associate Professor at Rutgers, The State College of New Jersey’s, in the Business Department. This position allowed Mr. Marano to achieve one of his lifelong dreams, which was to teach at the collegiate level. He truly loved teaching business courses to his college students and felt that this was a high point in his professional life and a fitting conclusion to his 35 year career.
Mr. Marano has two grown children, Jennifer and Jason, four grand-daughters and was happily married to his wife Susan for 36 years before she passed away. Mr. Marano now resides in Parrish, Florida. He is excited to once again utilize his knowledge and years of experience in management by helping his son (Dr. Marano) achieve one of his life dreams, of owning a veterinary hospital.
