Marcus graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a Bachelors of Arts in English with a minor in History. He managed his family owned business while continuing his education and earning a degree in Paralegal Studies from Edison State College. After several years in the legal field, he returned to his families business as General Manager of Operations, until it was sold. It was there that Marcus, as the general manager of operations, acquired ownership mentality.
From there he began his quest to find a profession that allowed him to use his managerial, history and legal skills together, leading him to The Naples Money Managers. Initially, he was positioned in Client Services but it soon became very apparent that his skills were a perfect match for the portfolio management team. There he worked closely with the team, specifically Dennis Nelson. Nelson has an uncanny gift when it comes to the feel and selection of securities, the economy and changing trends. A gift that is almost impossible to duplicate. The Naples Money Managers are fortunate to have found that gift in Bickle. Nelson, his mentor says: “He is a natural when it comes to stocks, as if an old soul lives within him, with years of experience.”
Since Bickle’s arrival, he has also become a family man. Getting married to his wife Talya, an engineer in Lee County, buying a home and a father to two beautiful sons.
