“I have worked closely with the Marston team on many important programs for more than a decade. In every assignment, whether it be for Home Depot, Chrysler or my new investment advisory company, XLR-8, Bob Marston and his firm have provided me and my management teams with exceptional communications counsel and have performed brilliantly and, in every assignment, exceeded my expectations. They are talented and dedicated professionals and clearly leaders in their industry.”

Robert Nardelli, Founder, Chairman and CEO, XLR-8, and former CEO of Chrysler, and The Home Depot


“During my years at Honeywell, we relied heavily on Bob Marston and his team to heighten and burnish our company’s public image as we prepared to merge our company with Allied Signal. The merger was a success, and the Marston group was instrumental in publicizing that event internationally in a highly positive way. The strategic counseling services we received were truly exceptional.”

Michael Bonsignore, Former chairman and CEO, Honeywell


“For more than 20 years, Bob Marston and his team was John Hancock’s agency of record as the company steadily enhanced its reputation and became an industry leader. I depended heavily on Marston’s business judgment and strategic communications counsel to help our management build a strong brand and enviable reputation. Over the course of many assignments, Marston always performed efficiently and exceptionally well.”

David F. D’Alessandro, Former CEO, John Hancock Financial Services Inc.

“I have counted on Bob Marston and his excellent firm for communications counsel for more than four decades. The Marston team has been an indispensable part of Castle Harlan’s public relations and marketing efforts since our firm’s inception some 27 years ago, and we continue to rely heavily on Marston’s sound judgment and strategic vision, which have distinguished the firm from others in its industry.”

John Castle, Chairman and CEO, Castle Harlan, Inc.


“The Marston organizations has been our communications ‘partner’ in North America for almost 20 years, and we are extremely pleased with the firm’s abilities, professionalism and dedication to our business. Because of the newsworthy high-profile searches we conduct, journalists ask us constantly for information about clients that we cannot reveal; yet, some of our work deserves recognition. Marston has helped us to build our reputation, while continuing to protect client confidentiality.”

Thomas J. Neff, Chairman of Spencer Stuart U.S.


“I have worked closely with Bob Marston and his firm for more than four decades. I first retained Marston to help enhance the reputation of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, which, in the early 70s, was still a small Wall Street boutique. Subsequently, I worked side by side with the Marston group on a variety of critical communications assignments, including a major National Parks Foundation Alaska program and a pro-environment project on behalf of the Rockefeller family. Each of these was hugely successful. I have found the firm’s business knowledge, experience and sound strategic judgment to be unusual and highly effective assets.”
