Marrowstone Advertising

Company Summary

Marrowstone Advertising Consultants will be a limited liability partnership registered in the state of Delaware for tax purposes. Its founder is Mr. Curtiss Cole, a former marketing executive with the Boy Scouts of America. Mr. Cole has brought together a highly respected group of marketing, development, and graphic art specialists who, combined, have a total of 35 years of experience with nonprofit organizations.

The company has a limited number of private investors and does not plan to go public. The company has its main offices in Reston, Virginia. The facilities include a design lab, conference rooms and office spaces. The company expects to begin offering its services in January.
