Outside of the Agency, Marc serves as special communications advisor to Pennsylvania State University. He is also an active member of the board of directors of Brockmans, a UK-based spirits company; the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO); Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation; Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce; The Satell Institute for Corporate Social Responsibility; Philly Ad Club; Castleman Disease Collaborative Network, and Team IMPACT.
