Dan Marzullo, '15

Like many post-COVID-19 employers, Dan Marzullo is not hampered by the constraints of the in-person office. As a successful marketing consultant based in Colorado Springs, the 2015 graduate has employees nationwide.

Marzullo came into his career by happenstance. Backed by courses he took at CMU in kinesiology, Marzullo was running a fairly successful personal training business as a student. Although he loved the physical demands of personal training, he was less enthusiastic about the science of it. During his senior year, he decided to round out his electives with some business classes. “I thought those classes would help to grow my fitness business,” Marzullo explained. Instead, he discovered that he loved marketing more than kinesiology. “Those business classes really opened my eyes,” stated Marzullo. He finished his kinesiology degree and also took as many business courses as he could before graduating.

This change was a pleasant surprise for Marzullo, something he hoped might happen when he enrolled at CMU. He explained, “College is about finding what you do and don’t like. What you’re good at and not good at. What your path is going to be.”

Marzullo is also passionate about sharing his marketing knowledge through his podcast The Copy Corner. His podcast is tailored to people working in business-to-business enterprises and covers topics such as content marketing, copywriting, business and entrepreneur partnerships, and general marketing.

Marzullo is also a focused family man. He met his lovely wife, Toni, in his sophomore year at CMU. Toni is a 2016 biology and chemistry graduate who is soon to earn her diploma as a dental hygienist. The dedicated couple have a four-year-old daughter and are expecting a baby boy this summer.
