Sean Marx


Sean Marx grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He graduated with a B.A. in economics from Occidental College, and began his career on the West Coast in 1988 as a territory sales representative for Ricoh copiers in San Francisco. He quickly became a top performer and was promoted to sales management. Soon after, he was approached by Mike Hannigan with the idea of starting Give Something Back. Says Marx, "Growing up in Cambridge during the '70s had a permanent effect on my impression of the world around me. Cambridge is very diverse, and being exposed to that and big city problems made me extremely sensitive to social issues. As a sales manager, I was very successful financially, but I was disillusioned with the priorities of my peers. Focus on material wealth and a lack of concern for world problems did not fit with my upbringing. So when Mike approached me with the idea of starting a company based on the concept behind Paul Newman's food company, I jumped at the chance."
