About Michael Marcon


The first thing you’ll learn about me is that I am uncomfortable talking about me (so, of course, I write a blog).  So, I asked a dear friend to do my intro…

From his childhood on the south side of Chicago to Ridgewood, NJ;  From Bergen Catholic HS to Ursinus College, Michael Marcon’s driven, benevolent nature has propelled him to success as a business leader, a trusted mentor, a world-class friend, and a committed husband, father, and grandfather.  His passion for finance merged with his entrepreneurial spirit in 2001, when he started Equity Risk Partners, a global specialty insurance brokerage and continues today as the founder and managing partner of M3K Holdings, an investment and advisory services firm he created after selling Equity Risk in 2016.  His devotion to his wife, Mary, his two sons, Keaton Cross and Matthew, his daughter in law, Laura, and his grandchildren, Penelope and Henry, is his “true north.” After 30 years of building businesses and 25 years of family lessons taught AND received, Michael has learned a thing or two about life, business, heartache, joy, success, failure, good books, great movies, philosophy, and the everlasting power of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Occasionally, Michael asks you to take 10 to 15 minutes of your time to engage with him.  Welcome to his world — the World According to Michael Marcon (WAM, for short).
