About Marathon Consulting

Marathon Founding PartnersDedicated Every Day to the Success of Our Clients

Since 2006, Marathon Consulting has provided IT and digital marketing services to a variety of clients across many industries. Marathon has been delivering these services to organizations ranging from small to medium-sized businesses to global Fortune 500 companies.

Marathon Consulting began as a team of four that collectively had 80+ years of experience in the IT space. The founders recognized a lack of IT services in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. From there, the company was born. Today, we have over 120 full-time equivalents (FTEs), have served over 550 clients, and have 2 offices - one in Virginia Beach and one in Richmond, VA.

Why the success? We are dedicated to providing measurable value to our clients. It takes a disciplined approach to consultant recruiting and the use of practical, repeatable and cost-effective methodologies. We bring a commitment to our clients that few firms of our size can match.

Marathon's founders believed the company would succeed if it adopted three key principles

  1. Provide clients with high-quality, high-value IT services by focusing on engagements that provide our clients measurable results, quick payback and a sound return on investment (ROI).
  2. Create an employment culture that rewards high performance, recognizes the value of a balanced life, and provides opportunities for professional and personal growth.
  3. Earn reasonable profits, sufficient to ensure the ongoing financial health of the firm.
