Celebrating Marian’s Long-tenured Employees – 50 and 25 Years!
We value our long-tenured employees and the immense value they provide to Marian. Throughout their long careers, they have developed expertise in our processes and in the converting industry as it has evolved. They have also learned new skills and assumed new roles as opportunities have come up. Our long-tenured employees have trained and mentored new employees, taking them under their wings and making them feel like family. These employees constantly find ways to improve our company. We are extremely grateful for their service, commitment, and contributions to Marian!
50 YEAR EMPLOYEES!
Al Leighton has been with Marian for over 55 years. From his start in 1966, he has contributed significantly from finance and accounting roles, particularly as Marian has grown worldwide. His efforts and approach have substantially impacted Marian’s financial stability. His extreme generosity and philanthropic heart impact all of our employees and the entire Indianapolis community.
Phil Taylor started at Marian in 1970. “PT” worked in many roles starting in customer service, inside sales, outside sales, sales manager, and currently as VP. He has helped architect and has provided invaluable input into many of the systems and processes we use at Marian today. He is a legend in the converting industry. You can always spot Phil at employee events, carrying a camera, capturing photos and videos for his next amazing video creation!
Dave Hurrle began working at Marian at the same time as Phil Taylor, in 1970. Dave jumped into an outside sales role, catching on quickly. His understanding of converting and his rapport with his customers were (and still are) remarkable. When Marian acquired JJ Glenn (now Marian Chicago), in 1984, Dave took the opportunity to lead this operation. He still sits as CEO of Marian Chicago, a growing and thriving division of Marian’s global companies.

At the time these three started at Marian, there was only 1 location, only around 10 employees. Today we stand at 12 locations and 4,500 employees worldwide. (Read more of our company history).
We are in awe of their dedication and eternally grateful to have these 3 in the Marian Family!
25 YEAR EMPLOYEES!
Each year we take time to honor and celebrate our 25-year employees. Believe it or not, there are too many to list individually!
67 out of ~450 employees in the US have worked 25+ years with the company!
Like we say on our webpage about our culture, our employees are our greatest asset. Our long-tenured employees contribute significantly to our company. They strive to meet our quality objectives daily: satisfy our customers, continuously improve, and create a better work environment. They provide an amazing example to new employees as our company continues to grow.
Check out this video from 25-year employee, Brad Countryman. He shares his thoughts on joining Marian 25 years ago, and how Marian has changed (or not changed) as the company has grown. Huge thanks to Brad, and to all of our long-tenured employees!
