L. Gene Marsolek, Manufacturing Representative, Owner and President of the L. Gene Marsolek Company Incorporated, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership.
Mr. Marsolek began his career as the manager of his father’s hardware store, Marsolek’s Hardware and Appliances, where he worked from 1961 to 1965. After studying at the University of Colorado, he served in the Colorado Air National Guard from 1965 to 1969, and served in Korea before receiving an honorable discharge. Returning to his post as manager of his father’s store, he remained there until 1968 and left to pursue a career as a manufacturer representative. From 1970 to 1974, Mr. Marsolek acted as a manufacturer representative at John Brickell Company in Denver, Colorado.
In 1975, Mr. Marsolek began as the owner and president of his company, L. Gene Marsolek Company Incorporated, working in this venture for more than 40 years. Among his myriad professional achievements, he is especially proud of his collaboration with the JADO Company, a German-based company, which he helped to develop starting from nearly nothing. The company eventually reached a profit level of $20 to $30 million per year—Mr. Marsolek assisted JADO in setting up their business operations in America, as well as redesigning and manufacturing their products for American standards.
In order to stay up to date on changes in his field, Mr. Marsolek maintained affiliation with the Manufacturer Representatives National Association as well as the Association of Independent Manufacturer’s Representative. Together with his late wife, Judith Kay Busch Marsolek, he was very proud of starting a small Lutheran church in Colorado, which began with 26 members in a pizza parlor, expanded to more than 600 members, and eventually moved to a very large complex. Currently, he is focused on fighting to end the 500,000 annual deaths from tobacco-related diseases and the 16 million people currently suffering from tobacco-related diseases. Before her unfortunate passing from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Mr. Marsolek’s wife asked him to do what he could to stop the smoking epidemic. He hopes to stop tobacco farming in the United States and impose a ban on tobacco products and derivatives.
