Chris Marquez: President and CEO
Chris Marquez founded NCC in 2002 with the simple idea that a company should deliver on its commitments: “I saw the promises for value that were never delivered during the dot-com bubble, and I wanted to start a company where we were selling real products and services with measurable results.” He specifically targeted the Federal government because of its emphasis on public service over strict profit motive. Mr. Marquez has grown NCC from its beginnings as a media services company based in his own basement to a diversified professional solutions firm located just outside of the nation’s capital. He continues to set NCC’s strategic course with the vision of building our internal capabilities and fostering long-term relationships with key business partners in order to create customized solutions that exceed our clients’ expectations.
Before and after pursuing his M.B.A. in Information Systems and Marketing from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Mr. Marquez found success in several businesses. He managed a government contract for retail stores with a five year history of declining sales under government management. His planning and execution of a series of innovative changes to the business model resulted in a doubling of sales at the stores within 2 years from $1.7M to $3.4M. Later, as a Project Manager for a telecommunications company, Mr. Marquez was responsible for helping to integrate a series of seventeen siloed business databases into one integrated system.
In the 2 years prior to founding NCC, Mr. Marquez worked as Business Strategy Consultant at Commerce One, a B2B software company focused on establishing online marketplaces during the infancy of the e-commerce era. At Commerce One, Mr. Marquez worked with a variety of Fortune 500 companies, including HP, International Paper, Duke Energy, and British Telecom, to create online business commerce strategies, scale organizations to support online operations, and provide marketing support to achieve organizational profitability.
Mr. Marquez received his Bachelor of Arts in English from the College of William and Mary. He is an avid hockey fan and loyal follower of the Washington Capitals, even donning his own skates to play in an adult league for his local club hockey team. Off the ice, Mr. Marquez enjoys reading and music, and is married to a personal trainer and fitness buff with a passion for rescuing greyhounds; together they are happily raising a lovable mutt, Freyja and one greyhound, Gracie.
