Andrew Wessels is the Founder & CEO of The Marque.
Andrew first conceived of the idea for The Marque when, after researching former mentors and colleagues online, he realized information about individuals is often unorganized, inaccurate and outdated. Seeing a significant gap in the market, he set out to build a digital profile management platform that provides leaders in their field with an accurate, current and clearly presented online profile that offers privacy and security from unwanted solicitation.
Today, The Marque is the leader in digital profile solutions for successful individuals. A Marque Profile is a crucial digital asset that serves as the foundation of an individual’s digital communications strategy, allowing them to present themselves in the digital world as they would in their everyday lives. The Marque has grown into a global brand that serves clients in the US, UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East with offices in London, New York and Cape Town.
The Marque’s services extend beyond its digital profiles to include digital audits, athlete profiles, foundation pages and dedicated services for boards and companies. It also offers a digital briefcase, which, in addition to a profile and a digital audit, offers clients valuable peace of mind with consistent real-time online reputation monitoring and expert digital partners.
Andrew’s entrepreneurial work ethic is complemented by an innovative mindset and a natural feel for communication and collaboration. After leaving behind a first-class cricket career in his native South Africa, he ventured to the UK where he held senior roles at J.P. Morgan and Carphone Warehouse (later Frontiers Capital). Moving his focus to innovative start-ups, Andrew assisted in the launch of Marquis Jet in Europe (later sold to NetJets) following their launch in the US, and served as CEO of Storm Solutions, a telecommunications business which he successfully exited in 2012.
