Marcus Turner grew up in the Soundview section of the Bronx, New York. He studied Business Management at Iona College in New Rochelle and started his own artist/producer management company at the age of 25. In 2007, he began working for HBO as an archivist. He has managed major projects, preserving HBO legacy material. Marcus is currently the Chair for the African American Resource Group at HBO, which promotes diversity within the company. He uses this platform to raise employee awareness, employee engagement, and employee retention. Marcus first joined Community-Word Project as a volunteer through HBO at a Mural Paint Day. Community-Word Project's passion for the children they serve made it clear to him that this is where he needed to invest his time. He was a co-chair for Community-Word Project's 2015 Spring Benefit and joined the Board of Directors soon after. Marcus and his wife have one daughter and are expecting their second child in 2016.
